The days are growing shorter, darkness falls,
Wrapping its tendrils around my body,
As they tighten their grip a lone bird calls,
Piercing my heart with its stark melody,
Dead leaves crackle their life now is over,
The bird sings again its funereal song,
Like that of a dying, anguished lover,
Knowing the joy that was is now gone,
As the bird reaches its beak to the sky,
Stars start to twinkle and dance in the night,
A nightingale sings, its song rises high,
Out of the darkness has come a great light,
The spell is broken, i know I will live,
I learned in the dark a new song to give

    Hello rue202. Thankyou very much for your kind comments. The poem was inspured by my going blind following cancer and chemotherapy. I am also wheelchair bound as a result of cancer and chemo. The worst bit to bear was the blindness. However, the autumn and the dying leaves and the sound of a burd sunging whilst it was goung dark inspired this. I am so happy that you read and liked this piem. Thankyou
