To Those Who Chose to Leave

by Poetess   Mar 12, 2017


You missed the sunrise today.

It rose slowly.
Exposing vibrant yellows and
warm reds and
subtle hues of blue.
A spectacle that
would have inspired Albert Bierstadt.

It rose as it has
every day before,
but it wasn't the same.

Had you realized
that no sunrise would have been
the same as yesterday's...

Had you endeavored through
your darkest night,
you may have seen its light.

But I will always wonder
if you would have found solace
in today's sunrise.
