Lazy Sunday

Lazy Sunday greeted me

With midday sun and shine

As I awoke to autumn’s chill

And peaceful hope all mine

With weighty thoughts and weary mind

Last night I went to bed

The same strangling feelings which

For weeks have roved inside my head

Bit by bit I’ve unwound the ties

And cut the ties that bind

To find a way to untether myself

And finally free my mind

Bone weary have I felt for weeks

A heavy dread and ache

That has made it tough to be

More or less … awake

For days and days I’ve slept because

My heart and soul were weak

Putting their recovery first

For it’s a happy heart I seek

Last night I slept so deep and long

Unflinching to light or noise

That half the day was gone before

I woke to Sunday’s joys

A lazy Sunday afternoon

A peaceful place to start

With my soul shining brightly

And a lightness in my heart
