Promise of a New Day


Promise of a new day

My faith is weathering like the corps of a rusty iron
I think my extremity has been reached
No earthly drug there be can seemly suppress this blunt-daggered blow
Life has hit me hard I know, many times too much
I wonder how much there is to take
These pains has finally become a habit that will soon lose all potency
Despite all blows I still have one prayer that lightens my hard done soul
A treasure in Pandora's box
New hope will spring with the rising of tomorrow's sun
dreams will become fresh and renewed like the grass-dew of dust new day
that will usher in a time of jubilant dances
the worst will be finally over
and the finest days still lies ahead
all be enclosed in a promise of a new day

A little while a little love
The hour yet bears for thee and me

If still our heaven be lit above.
Thou merely, at the day's last sigh,
