Her face did not haunt him any longer

Day by day his heart grows stronger

Emerging from grave in darkness

Grounded, once again

The lighted path before him beckoning

Come this way

Stormy clouds have lifted

The sky



He felt at peace, much cleaner

Not dirty, tainted, or obscene

The sun itself does greet him

As morning replaces night

Still weary, bruised, and tender

Remnants from vicious fight

Deep breaths, eyes closed, he stands there

Absorbing all that’s good

Soul aglow like embers

He steps proudly from the mud.
