Her eyes,
Blue and deep,
With shadows reflecting the horrors of a tumultuous past.

Yet that smile,
Vivid and bright,
Showing a pristine prescient of fading shadows from some overcast skies.

Your Day Will Come

Today you may be a chapter lost in a sea of books,
Or a tune hummed once in some hidden brook.

Forgive them for they are naive,
Unaware of the treasure stored in your hive.

Soon the day will come,
When you will be their moon,
when they will be raring to bask in your sooth.

Remember the dark days have a purpose of its own.
For it needs you to bring the new shining dawn.
