No More Laments

No more songs about the rain
and the weeping of the stars
no more laments

Life is what it is
and time must pass
as time has always done

I smile when I can
hold on to hope when I can’t
and mostly muddle through

And now and then, if I allow it
there is a moment that reminds me
how spectacular it is to be alive

That simple feeling
always waiting to be felt
is an oasis on my thirsty trek

It bids me lift my eyes
straighten my back
and set out for the horizon
once more
