My sky, tangerine with the setting sun
Had shifted into the night
Etched with hues of dark blues
That chased away the light
It was hard to find the beauty in it,
But the moon still shined upon me.
Then soon the dawn was to come,
Cheerful jays of teals and grey
Serenading rays of golden hope
That hopefully would soon brighten my day.
The night was full of suffering,
But with the morning came some promise.
As fate would have it,
The azure beauty soon turned pale
Light was obscured by clouds mundane
That spewed their sorrowful hail.
It was not easy to cling to hope,
But grace was sufficient to press on.
The evening came soon enough
And with it a soothing mist,
I was blessed as I looked up to it,
Soaked in navy by heaven’s kiss
I never thought I’d make it this far
That I could be so free
It was your smile
The things that make you who you are
That came, glorious over the horizon,
That have me gazing in the stars
You might not have seen it just yet,
But look up, and see the palette of my heart.
