In These Times of Sorrow

'Blue Morning'  Steve Hanks

burdened with sorrow
I curse the morn
for it has chased away
the sheltering shadows.

the world’s in turmoil
my love, has forsaken’d me

from obscurity, I surrendered
a final moment of courage–
my last strength willed to thee

for there was nothing left

life’s last breath
abandons my hollowed frame
finally, embracing peace

anon! the wind brings forth
my soul in these times of sorrow

our last passion survived
only to halo your spirit

my one love, my one life

what I wouldn’t gift
to the whole world?

If I knew you loved me.
