melancholy shadows

I see melancholy shadows on the wall

they are not smiling though I cannot see

through the dark veil of sadness that lurks in the night

with only my dreams to comfort me

dashing dodging images

flashing fleeting memories 

floating in the darkness around

I reach out to touch them in the air

and grab the dreams of yesteryear

yet they suddenly disappear

i lie awake till dawn

and suddenly the images are gone

as the dawn chases the orbs away

now comes a brand new day

 as the sun appears bringing it’s warmth

shining hope through my blinds

as the clouds disappear

from my mind in the light of day

chasing all the sorrows away
