With the rising of the sun
The arrival of dawn
Another day is awakening
I have survived, weathered the storm.
Not that of gusty winds,
Of thunder, lightning or rain
But one that is deep within
Fuelled with anger and hidden pain.
The darkness has been broken
Daylight brings with it a smile
A moment of warmth and happiness
Urging me to stay a while.
I have found my inner peace again
It has repaired the scars and sorrow
I see hope and joy that was lost
A promise of a better tomorrow
