Light Of Day - A Poem

Updated on October 18, 2016

Light Of Day

When serious, thoughtful mood comes leaning on your minds own frame

of troubles, ill-health, hard times, that kept you pinned to the board of despair

hopes sprung up when light streamed into the dark days' mental hold

freedoms upward waving arms saying; "it's time to lose your gloom

in the abyss of non-existence, where it belongs

come out from behind the veil!"


The storms of life came crashing like waves on rocks

swept you away for a time, but you did not drown

a lifeline from Heaven came down, to ease all burdens

still here on earth to live with its daily round

of chores and steps to climb

your baggage left behind at last

some wholesome thoughts can now flow freely

like sky-birds on the wing

like acrobatic aeroplanes doing loops and tricks

in endless aether

thoughts at least are free

more so when put down with pen on paper

Rather be in a 'brown study' for a time

than in a place of restless boredom or irksome worry

till other activities arise to fill your time and space

with a fulfilling embrace


As children we played in the garden

in the last light of day

before supper and all that followed

now too, your time is too precious to waste


"What happened to him?" some asked

but you said nothing

knowing that ill-health, a broken mind

stole away the years when

you should have moved onwards


Now the Light Of Day comes beckoning

you seek Gods face

striving with resolve

your mind no longer closed

the body somewhat better

you seek to let life's abundance unfold

before your eyes

go with it

and sing new songs

in The Light of Day.

_

Psalm 96

" 'Oh, sing to the Lord a new song!

Sing to the Lord, all the earth.

Sing to the Lord, bless His name;

Proclaim the good news of His

salvation from day to day.' (New King James Version, Psalm 96, v. 1 - 2)"
