Remnants of Joy

I awake with a scream
From a beautiful dream
To a nightmare reality
Watching in horror
As remnants of joy slip
Like sands of time
Through wrinkled hands
Into which I weep
Then I fall back asleep

Even rocks sparkle in the sunlight
But it is only the stars that shine
In the darkness of night.

I rode off into the sunrise
Towards the hope a new day promises
Turning the page as the Earth turns
Not knowing what might be around the corner
Running away from who I had been
To find out who I could be
