- Books, Literature, and Writing
Through the Night
Standing at the edge of the water
As the waves rush in.
Tears mingle with the raindrops
Too afraid to try again.
Hurts build on top of each other
Anger and fear blend
A wall protects the broken heart
Unwilling to break again.
Sinister shadows dance around
Nighttime quickly descends
Darkness hides the hopelessness
Too tired to try again.
As the night stretches on forever,
Despair threatens to win.
Can the flicker of hope that's left
Give strength to try again?
Awaking as daylight beckons
The sun will shine again.
A warm breeze subtly blows
Calling out to try again.
