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
