a note from me (today)
to me (tomorrow)
and all my other (tomorrows)
reminding me (and you)
that this view is my

window
on

the world
and reminding
me (and you)
that

a

smile

costs

nothing

i keep
my

distance

their (winding) road (out of the dark)
so long and

lonely

their (treacherous) path (back to the light)
not the

only

way

limbs
on the point of

breaking

hearts

aching

(lost) souls going with the

flow

so very,

slow

and still,
they

know

however,

slow

the sun will

shine

sent to try us
sent to harm us
sent to challenge us

new day

enjoying the

of a
clear bright

future
