Capturing Dawn

July 5, 2008
By Megan Cahill, Cranford, NJ

As the gentle light of dawn sprawls out over the darkened sky,
Birds sing blissfully greeting an old friend’s arrival.
The sun’s newborn rays slither gently through the glass,
quietly sinking themselves into your old and delicate skin.
They turn the corpse of the night into a radiant life.
A beautiful life lived will forfeit no bereavement,
Happiness is found in the world of dreams,
That you so graciously found beneath the stars last night.
