Until the Dawn

Updated on May 23, 2018

Until the dawn

I've cried out my life
I've cried out my soul
I've turned the river pearls into tears true blue
I still haven't cried over you

I dug out a grave
I buried my heart
I solemnly promised the truth to bear
I still didn't hold you near

I stand at the twilight
Watch the sun-moon dance
The rays cleanse my home, long gone
Within my sight, I let you drown
Into the solitary waves of the dawn
That wouldn't come, never around

      Yes, we are mostly like that.

      Into the things that seemingly don't matter, until we finally come to the One that does. Exquisite piece.

      What a beautiful heart-breaking poem, these are hard to do. The last verse is poignant.
