I have been feeling really dreary lately.

The rain, the time change....

It has all weighed heavy on my heart.

I miss the sunshine on my face

The smile of the clouds as they pass by.

I miss being outside and soaking in this wonderful life.  

I have spent many days curled up in bed 

The blankets my cocoon, 

holding in the tears that want to fall

like the rain falling outside.  

I listen to the song the rain sings

Hoping it will soothe my sadness

I flip through old photographs of wonderful times 

I cherish the memory of these moments, 

but my heart is


for the sunshine.  

Tomorrow is a new day, 

and the beautiful sun should shine brightly

Hopefully this will light up my heart.
