The tomorrows I believe in

I walked in the desert today, and found beauty, and grace,

There was peace, and solace I found in this desolate place,,


It seems we can find these things anywhere we care to look,

Won't you join me? Together, we can turn the pages of this book,,


The creation is out there waiting for those who would dare,

And answers through emptiness for whoever waits there,,


Sunrise left enchanting footprints on the golden shore,

The breeze whispered in my ear, reflecting memories on the floor,,


Suffocated by sand, wherever the eye could go,

My life passed me by, happy times trapped in my shadow,,


As I reflected upon my life, a weak voice called my name,

Telling me about the tomorrows I believed in, and how they never came,,


My heart stopped for a moment, my world came crashing down,

I began to speak the important words that I never found,,


Every breath I took was poetry waiting to be told,

A story, a memory, a unique tale of old,,


Slowly my life felt like it was coming together again,

Solace comforted me, and took away my pain,,


At sunset I was wrapped up tightly in life’s loving embrace,

And as I slept silently, I found myself in this isolated place.
