Gloomy Day!


I see through my window how the day's dew is still falling. It rained lightly last night and the morning has decided to sulk and be gloomy. Drivers are forced to put on their lights lest their precious vehicles kiss each other and make them gloomy!

I know even those going to work are forced by their needs. As workers walk to their offices, the flowers in the flower beds can hardly be seen because of the fog. No beautiful sight to brighten workers getting to their offices looking gloomy!

This gloomy day is making everything cold and gloomy. But I will not allow the gloomy day to make me gloomy. I have you Sweetie in my heart, warming me from inside, making me smile and so I am far from gloomy!

God and lovely you have conspired to bring joy into me that defeats gloominess on a day that is gloomy! I remember your smile and I smile too. I visualize your beauty and I know that I don't need flowers to make me not gloomy!
