Beyond the Clouds by Colleen Keller Breuning
Beyond the Clouds
Pinpoint lights dot black velvet fields above,
Eyes travel north and wish upon a star.
The intellect seeks while the heart finds love
Beyond mountains of despair, near and far.
Long shadows of night tumble into day,
An unrelenting quest for inner peace.
Though darkness fades to muted shades of grey,
I look beyond the clouds for my release.
Hot summer rain beats down upon my face,
Melting anxieties away like ice.
Your words resonate, filling me with grace;
Their seeds of hope as plump as grains of rice.
Your image has faded, my tears have dried…
Forever I shall carry you inside.
