Drops of Dew
Maybe it's a rainy day,
I feel the drops on my face.
I never broke into the rain -
I'd promised I never would.
And though my heart aches and the tears run down my face
I stay put.
I believe in my own light
and I know it falters often.
Every time I miss a step in this long journey
I think I've lost it all
Every time - 'it just about happened'
I fear that the light I cherish
grows ever so dim.
I fear that if I make a grab for it
I shall shatter
I can not win.
Treacherous feelings rise inside me
they wish to drown me to death.
In my despair I wonder where I went wrong
didn't I keep every word I gave myself?
Yet I know it's my own fault, thus I lose faith.
I can't let go
I must stay put
I promised once,
This is a journey I've begun to see through
I must attain my aim, my future stands thus
my life, my esteem, and more, much more than that,
my faith stands thus...
All of them expect so much, I shiver
I somehow tell myself they're right.
Bur every time my heart trembles, my hands quiver
An adamant voice in my heart snaps tight
To live up to their standards is a tough job
but after all it's my own life
And as I look at the spot of light that grows ever so dim,
I believe in me.
If I have the power enough to keep a promise I made so long
I have the vigor to climb that ultimate throng.
It's time I had better sweep away those tears
and recall what she always told me about defeat and fears:
"Maybe it's a rainy day. Remember that rainy days are meant to precede the
October sun. As long as you rely on yourself and keep your cool in these times,
you rightfully deserve the sun that later shines. Never forget that we are
always with you... I'm always with you."
