“Happy is he…” or so it goes
Though never do I understand
But talking to me, it really shows
That I never understand.
Whispers of love fall from my faith
And hope shines like stars in the night
But blind as a bat I fall from the sky
Crashing in the middle of flight.
“Just get up and get out of bed…”
Or, “Try to do what’s right.”
Remember to listen to what she said,
And maybe you might gain some sight.

I like the different tones I read in this poem: reflective, whimisical, pragmatic…yet they come together to create such a wise and touching poem. Wonderful =) Take care, Que
Thank you Que.
