Eclipse Darkness

Permeating Light

I woke up to shadows

Looming over the sun

As I opened my eyes

Expecting total darkness

On the horizon of fun

And I saw the light

Penetrate through my curtain window

Of hope that shone forth

Through the shadow of darkness

Looming over the light

To my surprise

Oh, darkness unite

With light

Of the day

To show the way

I looked at the tree

In front of my window

The windowpane sparkled

As the partial light

So bright

Permeated through each leaf

On the tree

As if to say

Have a nice day.

Let your light shine

Through the night

Of the eclipse

As this is temporary


Light is forever

As the sun

Shines bright

In the night

Of the day

Bathing us all


With hope for the day

Of the eclipse

Forever it drifts

As we spin

To win

Awake on the freeway of life

Of today.

Floating through space

Of the race

Of the space

Occupied by life and humanity

Dark is here

Only a little

Cause I awake to see the light
