A Dark Wind

Ormond Beach, Florida

Ormond Beach, Florida

A dark wind blew your smile away,
And brought tears upon your cheek,
But don’t let sorrow rule the day.

How heavy this must surely weigh,
And now your world is bleak.
A dark wind blew your smile away.

So tempting to give grief its sway,
To despair and feel weak.
But don’t let sorrow rule the day!

And overwhelmed in this dismay,
You emit a silent shriek.
A dark wind blew your smile away.

If I could give you joy’s bouquet,
If there were only some technique—
But don’t let sorrow rule the day.

Find joy and laugh again, I pray.
Find just one happy streak.
A dark wind blew your smile away,
But don’t let sorrow rule the day.

  1. So beautiful ~ but sad. Hope you didn’t lose someone.
    It reminds me of the beach my husband took me to after the Dr.
    told him our daughter was terminally ill.
    “A dark wind blew our smiles away”,
    Hugs, Anna-Lena

  2. Very Dare Wright (“The Lonely Doll”) picturesque. I think you should compile some of these and make/publish a book.

  3. Just fantastic. Really sets a somber mood and yet delivers hope…all in the same breath. I love this, being the pessimist that I am, or that I seem to be.
