The Moonlight's Glow: A Poem

Photo contributed by Shutterstock @Pixels

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.


About the author

Story Girl CA- Caroline

Writing is my source of peace. I write short stories: memoirs, fiction, and on matters of the soul.

Writing could have been a career for me but I let it slip away. Itโ€™s never too late to start again. I hope you enjoy what you read here.
