Brighter Days (Pantheist)

Awakened to heavy silence, no sunrise in sight Was that just one more dream that passed me by? Smiling as it waved goodbye "you know how nothing can last" Still we crave for brighter days though we still feel blind Seems no-one warned us when somehow we'd lose our will The joys of yesterday still seem a perennial breeze But could we carry tomorrow's burdens with dignity? Today, the boundless reach of doubt should set us free As pilgrims bound to will, our doubt must set us free Like every fallen star Must wake just once more To arise and shine As it lits the way for the lost Puppeteered by fate Or free to our paths We'll stand and run again For the ever elusive light.
