In the Bright gloom

by mandaceehb

My dear

It is day that shall soon be night

Don’t forget 

That this light is short-lived


Don’t get caught up in the moment 

With all the beautiful smiles

For when darkness comes

Change will take but a while


Don’t forget

That when people laugh

It is the practised sound of concealed sorrow

There is a thin line between joy and grief

Laugh with them but never believe


Don’t forget

That darkness exists behind the sun

This temporal radiance

Will finally give way to an everlasting dawn
