Bright Shadows

Placid words waft from unmoving lips
Stringing together little stories untold
Of the countless lost and sunken ships
Burying deep within, the scars new and old

A silent wish bequeathed as days grow cold
The times whence the young would soar
When it was right to be wrong and bold
For now there can be mistakes no more

Strange as wisdom with time should grow
As thoughts promise to burgeon light
Lifting all shadows when the sun sinks low
But a converse truth engulfs the night

Fear not sings a tumultuous voice within
Hold tight as the anchor drops deep
Searching for calm amidst the din
As distant stormy winds begin to sweep

Bright shadows dance in inky water
Elusive promises of forgotten hope
Even as the timeless and the wise waver
End it has not as this is not an end

Eternal Glow

As the rain begins to wash off her fears
Her thoughts return to the present
The smell of the rain brings back memories of all those years

The pale reminiscent of a rainy day
Melding clouds obscure her face
Hoping that the wind would blow them to a place far away

When the rain would disappear
And the wind would lift her up
As the eternal glow of her smile brightens the world around her

Her light pours into this gloomy day
All the memories are left behind
But the embers of joy within each moment won't fade away

As her smile brings the eternal glow to the day...
