Tear tracks written in stone on my face,
Feet ache from many too many steps,
My collar turned up against the wind.
But walking here,
On this twinkling summer night,
I know everything's gonna be alright.

My mind stopped thinking,
And my feet stopped chasing,
And my heart stopped loving,
A while ago.
But standing here,
In this warm summer rain,
I know everything's gonna turn out right.

My smile ain't real no more,
My fear ain't fake.
And you ain't around,
To tell me it's alright.
Yet I think to myself,
It's a beautiful night,
And I know,
That everything's gonna be alright.

THis is really good too! I love your writing style! What i would do though, in that last stanza- i would change the first alright to something else because it seems a little too rhyme-y since you rhymed that twice.... you really don't have to though, it is still an awesome poem. Would you mind reading some of my stuff? I'm glad i came across you as a writer because i'm very fond of your work!! :) i would appreciate it if you would tell me what you think about mine!
