the road ahead was dark,
shrouded in midnight musings until
you came along with a glow
full of moonlight and sunshine
and the dull gravel beneath my feet
began to glow as if dotted with stars.
so now i watch the skies
with hope in my heart and a strange
lightness in my every step;
it was a lonely path but now the flowers
are blossoming by the roadside,
and their scent fills me with joy.
