The Eclipse

Sadness enveloped me

as the penumbra began

it was so frightening

tears on my face ran

Getting larger now

a category by itself

how much longer

I am by myself

In the realm of darkness

a dragon appears

chasing me with fire

there is much fear

Even the stars

which usually provide light

all is hidden

on this dark night

Time has passed

hiding behind a tree

sparks of light return

an ancient decree

The eclipse is over

now there is light

darkness could not overcome it

everything is alright

The sun is risen

as the day begins anew

hope replaces fear

tears are now dew
