The Mountains Stand Behind Me

The Mountains stand behind me
The sky, a gloomy blue
Into the ocean

The clouds above my head
Forever remind me of the soul's dampness
As i walk down dark alleys
The wind strikes my face unkindly
And i still search the dsimal sky
For a miniscule crack of light

But as i hurry through the dribble
Stepping mindlessly into puddles
A luminosity covers me from the cold - the recollection of a smile
Of sparkling eyes
Of pure innocence and abandon
The happy laughter of my child!
