The Light Went Out

Peter Gates

The light went out of life for me.

Lost love. Lost desire. Lost poetry.

Lost all I had that made me me.

But have found new love now, fortunately.

Hope shines brighter daily and now I see

I only faltered, stumbled temporarily.

Didn't really lose and I shall be

Back here, inspired, unencumbered, free.

              A beautiful life recoil, Mr Gates, and a necessary one too... Finding one's self once again. Re-establishing one's footsteps in a new direction, towards a new sunrise - Well depicted sir.
