The rain has washed the world clean
Rinsed each eye of its jaded smog
Wrung all disillusion from the leaden clouds
And brought back all the jewel colours.
Birds are calling, bright feathered bells
Chiming one to another in poetic response
Happiness has broken out in a Waterfall of Sunlight -
Look! Oh look...
Everything is new.
My eyes open like curtains, fluttering
I am floating, drifting on cool air currents
High, so high above the brilliant world
Wish you were here, wish you were here
You’d see what I see...how it changes me
Tumbles me from Sun to Star to Moon
Polishes me with the laughter of children and angels -
Like a forgotten wish
At last come true.
Here, fear becomes a foreign language
Bitter doubt is an unknown land
The storm has ripped all the pain from the sky
I am free at last of yesterday’s darkness
Like the rain, if I fall now, I’ll land softly...
Curl deep inside the whorled hearts of roses
Nestle myself amongst layers of soft crimson velvet -
Be safe to rest,
and simply be.
Moonlight leads the way to tomorrow
The world turns peacefully through quiet hours
And the Stars keep their Vigil,
