It’s a better day than yesterday

It’s a better day than yesterday,

The sky is clear and radiant,

The gray clouds are gone and

have given way to the majestic rays of the sun.

 

It’s a better day than yesterday,

The face is lit up with a smile,

The tear streaked paths on the cheeks are dried,

The contorted and grief stricken face

has broken out into a wide toothed grin.

 

It’s a better day than yesterday,

The sounds of hearty laughter can now be heard,

No more sighing and groaning,

The heart that was burdened and heavy

Is now light and free.

 

It’s a better day than yesterday,

All is gay and bright,

Colours are everywhere,

No more darkness and a dreary air,

The smell of rot and decay

has been replaced by the smell of

jasmine and honeysuckle.

    The gray clouds are gone and
    have given way to the majestic rays of the sun.

    Huh, something about these lines tell me you didn’t put more effort on the rewrites. The imagery is superb but the lines are arranged too ridiculously simple. Pardon my french.

    @topazo, simple is fine. Seasons are cyclical, so what about when yesterday comes back tomorrow?
