THE GENTLE VEIL OF MIDNIGHT / Poem by Joanna Svensson

 
Poem by Joanna Svensson
 
 
THE GENTLE VEIL OF MIDNIGHT
 
The gentle veil of midnight
Sweeps my thoughts
And gives me comfort
For no one sees my tears
 
The steady wings of time
Lifts me up towards the sky
I feel so light – nearly weightless
And yet filled
With power and inner strength
Just like always
As far as I recall
 
And I allow
myself to cry
Beneith the gentle veil
Of midnight
For the tears do clean my soul
Wash away all negative vibes
Bring balance in the present
And in what has just passed by
 
So all bad thoughts will slowly fade
Just like a forgotten painting
A watercolor in the rain
In the end all colors
Will just evaporate
All lines will vanish too
All that’s passed will dissolve
In the purifying tears of rain
 
So when the new dawn will rise
The future handles me his palette
With brand new colours
And water-color paper
To paint my own new picture
Of the future!
