Glory in Shades of Gray - Feb. 27, 2011


Glory in Shades of Gray

A new tear parted last night from an ocean of eternity
Where it had once laid shivering and sweet
Beginning to comprehend those words of comfort
From a spirit that has awakened within
Every eye you meet

Looking up for peace of mind outside of black and white
Thoughts hold a subtle sweetness all around
This new tear stares into the breath of expectation
Seeing glory in beautiful shades of gray
Now wonderfully profound

An old tear reveals lips that speak to us of retribution
Losing sight of what is right and wrong
Telling stories that have no place at all to go
Except dark hills carried in our souls
For way too long

A new tear parted last night from an ocean of eternity
Defining hope in feelings now recognized
In all those words of comfort proceeding forth
From the spirit awakening within
These smiling eyes
