I walk out into a gorgeous day,
the sun is bright, the sky clear and blue.
I look around and see the world and its people,
Everyone seems at ease. Nature out to please.
But I think there is a void in my being.
All through the day, I see faces of cheer.
Everyone seems to carry a little of the sunny weather.
I join in their laughter, my laughter mingling with theirs.
I smile not knowing why.
But I think there is something wrong inside of me.
The day turns into night, and the stars are shining bright.
The moon a little crescent, almost in a naughty wide smile.
The wind is cool, like a soothing balm on weary wounds.
Everything seems right. But my soul seems empty.
I know there is something missing.
