To Day

Neither sister, nor brother ~
nor one love following another
will ask you to stay,
as dusk ~ to dawn ~ to day.

You are free in your bonds of
loneliness
no one to hold to,
no one to kiss

no one to ease your pain.
Dream sweet, dream again.

In your restless, searching sleep
seeing yourself tied in bonds
you weep.
What do you want?
Iíll not tease nor taunt

you to stay,
as dusk ~ to dawn ~ to day.

Free in loneliness, pulling taut,
once you fought
against the fates
soon no longer to bear the weights.

Pray
God
youíre not too late.

Fate shall go on,
as dusk ~ to dawn ~ today.

Circa 1970

I love this Sunshine

You are free in your bonds of
loneliness
no one to hold to,
no one to kiss

no one to ease your pain.
Dream sweet, dream again.

Excellent, my dear!

Thank you Caroline. It's quite old, but I thought I'd pass it by you folks for a look-see.

Iím glad I read this one Sunshine. You have done such a brilliant job of conveying the feeling and sentiment within the structure and form of the verse. To the top you go.
