PROMISE OF THE NEXT SUN~by Lynn Elliott


 

 

PROMISE OF THE NEXT SUN

Somewhere between the shadow and light
Lies a temptation I cannot deny
Regret fills me as the new day begins
Then flees just as quickly when the day ends

I recognize I’ve been through more than most
Maybe that’s why I just can’t let go the ghost

A shipwreck out in the harbor
that didn’t heed the warning of the rocks
The present you never asked
for wrapped in a beautiful box

All these half truths softly spoken
allow me to let you go without a fight
I’ll stay here in the darkness, broken
and push you into the light

XO💋 Lynn Elliott
