Daily Prompt: Candle

Up in the hours when we need candlelight,

I miss waking up just before daylight,

And see how the sun rays break through the darkness,

I miss waking up to chirping birds and freshness,

Mornings made my heart full of hopefulness,

I miss waking up to a life in earnest,

Forgive me if my talks exhibit dullness,

I miss waking up with a dream of success,

Maybe in me you don’t find any goodness,

But I’ve lived a life of toil and stress,

It’s easy for you to compare me with yonder lass,

But little do you know all the tears I’ve wept,

Oh I wish I could wake up to a life of greatness.
