The bright sunlight glows

and lights up the room.

Adding joyful smiles to

the bright faces around me.

There is cheer, there is laughter

and there is the joy of togetherness.

There is every reason to be happy.

Yet, I am not happy.

But when the darkness storms in

and engulfs the room,

adding its shadows everywhere

in the stillness around me.

There is silence, there is gloom,

there is the darkness of solitude.

There is every reason to be uneasy.

Yet, I am at peace.
