Purple Twilight

Purple twilight come take me
and embrace me in my melancholy world.
Let me in my solitude
reflect on days past.

It is the color of my soul
when my world has gone black and white.
It then seems I’m searching –
for the smiles, I left behind.

The color of my sky
when I’m lost among my memories.
Wandering through lost dreams
and wondering if it’s reality or fantasy.

Purple twilight don’t leave me
wandering too long in a tear-misted forest.
Let me find my way back
to the sunny days once more.

You make me cry.
please let me go
and smile once more –
dancing beneath the sun.

You’re no friend of mine.
you make me frown
and turn my bright days dark,
making tears fall.

So purple twilight I will break away from you.
Find the peace I seek and
let love warm my heart,
leaving you far behind once more.

You’re no good for me,
for you make me long for what I cannot have.
Remember that which I’ve stored away –
in my heart just for a rainy day.

I’m starting to smile,
as my tears dry one by one.
You’re fading away like you should
and I see the rainbow overhead.

Bright rays of sun filtering from above,
the stormy clouds have all rolled away.
Doing the happy dance again and the silvery moonlight,
now reflects upon my joy.

Purple twilight, I’ve replaced you,
with brighter colors of a different hue.
No longer am I feeling any pain –
my smile is now as bright as the sun after the rain.

      Thank you, Phyllis. Yes, at least for now I am in Daytona Beach, Florida with giant palm trees outside my front door.
