By and By
The Moonlight's Glow: A Poem
By and by I sit up at night by the moonlight's glow,
listening to a nearby river's ebb and flow.
Sometimes I wonder if I'll ever be alright, but then again,
I remember this has been my eternal plight.
"Alright" is how I feel almost every day.
Joyful, loving and I pray that someday I will recognize the person who is me,
A strong-willed girl, trustworthy and true,
she doesn't give up nor succumb to cloudy gloom.
Instead, she makes sure only loving thoughts ring in her ears.
By and by, I sit up at night by the moonlight's glow,
listening to the river's song, my life as it ebbs and flows.
