The day I wept,
Today I slept,
I swept aside that which kept me awry,
And I breathe a sigh of relief to those who listen.
The days I wept,
Long avast are my tears, the yearning and the burning,
A year's past and I have found that which I thought I had all along.
Yet, today I am not blind to agony, the fight,
I remember that which I lost of myself,
Now regained in a new light.
