So ‘Tis With Everything

3 Jan

by T. Easton

Some say the seas cover the Earth

Like oceans of love cover a life

And when the wind howls through the trees

This hope shall comfort me

 

The darkness surrounds the stars but they fight

Till mercy reveals the dawn’s precious light

Since days turn to nights and nights turn to days

I shall not be afraid

 

The wintertime snow falls from the sky

As seasons bring change I laugh then I cry

And beautiful flowers bloom in the spring

So ‘tis with everything.
