PENNY MCCURRY

CERTITUDE
For my daughter

Silent pain rages as it steels the night
She’s young in heart, with a soul so dear
Silent calm awakens her early Dawn light

Struggles to seize, twinkling chance of fight
Solitude and darkness bursting amidst fear
Silent pain rages as it steels the night

Silent certitude, one passion in sight
Searching, wishing, wanting, waiting to hear
Silent calm awakens as early Dawn light

Strength, courage, endurance, fight night after night
Sorrow slipping softly, her secret tear
Silent pain rages as it steels the night

Searching, wanting, wishing future so bright
Stolen heartfelt moments are secreted near
Silent calm awakens as early Dawn light

Soft and frail, heart to soul, gentle and bright
Struggling secretive dances year after year
Silent pain rages as it steels the night
Silent calm awakens her early Dawn light
