Hour of Need

by Amy Christie 2 months ago in inspirational
Report Story

Time holding on

Now is the place

where all hearts go,

a race into sunset

to catch the tide

find happy dreams

on branches,

higher and harder,

each time you try to touch a wish

it turns to mist

or floats to tempt

another mind,

a soul waiting for home

and happy place.


What if you need this sun,

this light that grows colder

each second,

a breath can take away,

your will, the shade

covers last drop of strength

the garden you used to caress

now lies in weed,

forgotten and deceived

it trusted you to love

to ever-after glow,

you took happiness in a storm

returned anger

and hate

to where love used to bloom.


Flowers can't cherish desert,

don't waste a petal more,

find road back into dreams,

steps to a second chance,

the ivy can forgive

and so can heart

dare to belong

once more.


A gate to keep your soul

trapped in dark memories

and toil,

you're not staying unhurt

by cutting ties with world,


needs other smiles

in turn,

in love

in glowing gratitude,

making your light

takes wish

lights candles

from the sea

of other people's dreams.


Your flame grows stronger in this night,

doubt leaves your side with sun,

now you can smile,

be whole,

hate is melting on sill,

what you adored

is home once more,

laugh on this sunlit breath,

it can last,

hug your love,

eternal caress.


Don't wait in shadow for that day

happiness is never complete

take this second, the next

mold them into your cup

of sunny afternoons.


Days come and flee

laughter stays now,

in memories,

what came to pass

will visit one more time

leave key near the gate,

trust ivy

to cherish

your fate.


Dance with your fairies

teach them the way

to bring pace

and keep grace

in rainbow petals

without hate.
