#Melancholy Song Prompt #2 I Lift My Eyes

June 16, 2020

FREE WRITING

8
Towards the dawning sun I turn
To new life and what's ahead
And the setting sun I spurn
For to me the past is dead

I have fears and I have quakes
For the life ahead of me
But while my weary heart yet shakes
From the future I'll not flee

Past is lovely, full of sweet
Memories and still regret
But it holds only defeat
And times I wish to forget

So fly! To spreading dawn!
Follow the path laid out
Anxiety now is gone
As is all fear and doubt

For my path, though full of stone
Of rocky times to dread
Still clearly now is shown
By God who walks ahead

So I lift my eyes to spreading sun
And towards the open skies
Though I know that my path's not won
Through new steps my heart now flies
