Thoughts of the Day

Drifting through the night
with no thoughts in my mind
Stumbling over each question I find
If I pick them up carefully
and toss them to the sea,
will it send an answer with the wind
just for me?

No longer do I know what the answers should be
Just as I believe I have found them once more,
they slip through my fingers and even the score

Gazeing out at the darkness
Safely hidden -- deep within
Loyally returning with each days end
A deathless circle -- a changeless friend

In the warm dark night
no single witness can be found
of the pain filled tears you carry around

Moving through the night as the wind comforts me
I empty my mind for I must be set free
Watching as my thoughts are taken from me
Wondering why -- if they hurt me so
I let them go -- reluctantly

Seeing with my eyes the past once more
What looks like the future is nothing more
than the pains of tomorrow -- just like before

Property of Joy Elaine -- 1999
