Towards the Horizon

We were all in pain,
drawing ourselves
from our beds,
Wiping silent tears
from our cheeks,
Seeing only Sorrow
Thinking only Sorrow
Feeling only Sorrow,
Until, we noticed,
The children,
watching, hearing, feeling, waiting, for our words,
for our hands,
for our eyes to see them,
to guide them,
to hold them,
to help them find
reasons for joy,
for hope…
We noticed
The children
And we raised our faces
to the sky,
And we clasped their hands
And we walked, together,
telling stories, of other times,
other places, other dreams,
We clasped their hands
And we walked, together
towards the Horizon
