    DARKNESS


    It was easy to take for granted
    my eyes would always see
    the beauty of nature’s world
    unfolding in a morning’s blaze.

    Now that beauty fades away
    like the end of a movie:
    darkness creeps into my life
    as I stagger blindly to find
    an exit from this theater.

    The sun’s light fades:
    when it is all gone,
    what shall I have left?
    Memories of sparkling water
    and colorful dresses in Spring?

    Mountains, trees, sun-lit skies
    where did you go?
    Like dreams, you vanished
    from waking but unseeing eyes.

    I smell flowers and bread baking;
    I hear children laughing
    and a robin calling its mate.

    “Excuse me” says a voice:
    ah! I am standing
    in someone’s way.

    I really liked it, get poem. The meaning seems just out of grasp until the last 2 stanzas. Great work.
