Sweet Redress

by Neil Chatterton

Happiness
Lost and Found.
As I lookout
Searching
Squinting
As the Sun
Pierces my Soul.

Never ordained
Or promised
Yet overtly
Desired.

A wish for everyone
Each night
Ritual repeated
As the darkness
Descends and
Envelops.
Rocking gently
Into the underworld
Of sleep and dreams.

  1. Sounds like a man who knows the pain of too much caring; too much giving and understanding. Sleep brings a brief respite until morning, when it all starts over again. Makes me sad for some reason. Very beautiful and poignant.
