After The Rain

I found myself drowning
in my own tormented tears
nowhere to run...nowhere to hide!
I begged for some forgiveness...
from dark and lonely skies!

Life had left me long ago, body carried on
all my sorrow sealed beneath...
a soul to call upon
empty of emotion
on bended knees I prayed
to touch your hand just one more
time to chase the dark away!

Now we stand together, a smile upon our face
the light ahead it shines a path
forever to embrace.
This road has been a mindful one,
your shoes a painful walk...
my only wish to bathe your feet..
and kiss them dry in warmth

No more a heart is bleeding,
surrendered to a anew
from far away a sign of hope
happened upon my view.
