Grey Skies

28 Sep

When grey skies are all around

And only darkness can be found

All things look so dull and bad

Living a life that makes you sad

*

You can’t help the way you feel

Everything feels so surreal

Tomorrow may be filled with dread

What’s going on inside your head

*

Depression is a awful thing

 Skies are grey and no birds sing

Joy that seems so far away

Will come back again one day

*

These days will pass after a while

Once again you’ll  give a smile

When you conquer that bad day

All in time and in your way

*

You will hear sweet birds sing

And know the joy life can bring

And when that darkest day is done

Depression lost and you have won.

In my heart I can see

Exactly what you mean to me 

*

A simple smile or tender kiss 

When you’re near my life is bliss 

*

Spirit flying like a dove

In my heart I know it’s love
