The Silver Lining

Spread the love

the_silver_lining_by_ducky108-d36pu7c

Might I crumble down and fall;
Steer me clear with your grace.
Bring down the granite Β wall;
Encircle me with an embrace.

Because my life was not,
Spent in hiding.
You have become,
My silver lining.

Don’t leave me with my demon;
This emptiness surrounds me.
Shine your guidance upon me;
And let me soar towards Β Eden.

Because my life was not,
Spent in hiding.
You have become,
My silver lining.

Upheaval from the old ruins;
Where love was torn apart.
Can’t decipher what I’m doing;
Follow the instinct of the heart.

Because my life was not,
Spent in hiding.
You have become,
My silver lining.

    I am honestly wondering if you dream in rhyme form? I’ve never been one to rattle of a rhyme as easily as you. Is it something that comes naturally for you, or do you have some top secret book of rhymes that don’t suck?

    1. adashofsunny says:

      Hello Angie,

      LOL well it comes naturally to me as I tend to sing along while composing πŸ™‚ Its sort of habitual now. Glad you liked it πŸ™‚ Highly appreciated your kind remarks! Lots of love

    When the silver linings come, you have to go for them. I think Mae West may have painted on her own. ;_)
