Gloomy days and shades of grey,
promises long forgotten.
Words of pain leave scars that stay,
choices were ill-begotten.

Rays of sun obscured by cloud,
I pray for a glint of light.
Stinging darts thrown by the proud,
add misery to my plight.

wanting relief
embracing belief
searching for truth
hunting for proof
needing someone
praying for sun

praying for sun...


Clouds depart, a ray of hope,
softness instead of what's cruel.
Hope is renewed, helping me cope,
sun sparkling bright like a jewel.

Depression cuts like a knife,
carving up pieces of heart.
I need something more from life,
desperate to make a new start.

needing true love
like hand in glove
wanting to please
seeking release
dreaming of more
opening doors

opening doors...



windswept summer days that never end
flowers that bloom and never die
hallowed paths to tread lightly
happy smiles deep inside me

happy smiles deep inside
hope for the depressed

Lovely poem.  The illustration of Robin caught my eye.  It still is kind of like a punch in the gut that he is gone.  Such a lovely man.  Kind of like a saint.  Not perfect, I don't mean that, but there was something about him that brought so much love and light into the world.  I hope he is at peace.

i miss sitting near beaches watching it from a distance, watching the horizon and vastness of waters. i did that often in college when i felt low. something that kept me alive. waters have good effect on our bodies.

Don't let depression get the better of YOU, Qita.  You have much to offer, even more to give. :)
