Rise Up From Slumber

So sad and weary, do I lie
Upon my bed this dreary morn
Raising my head to view the clock
While begins a feeling of forlorn

What makes me rise up from my sleep
When nothing special fills my day
You, my friend,the sun, you call to me
Rise up, from slumber, begin this day
Day warms my heart, my mood repairs
The withering stone within my chest.
The sun beats down upon my bed
Encouraging me to give it my best

Gloriy flares as the day begins .
God sends us His message on each ray
Rise up,  from slumber, my precious,
Rise up, from slumber, begin the day.

Brilliance fills the room with light
My soul awakens with a start
A liquid warmth washes over me
As, my body warms, so does my heart

Most powerful serum within this vessal,
Friendship stays empowering the day.
Once rested part of my lonely heart
Rises up from slumber to greet this day

Poetry is not the expression of personality but an escape from personality.

T. S. Eliot (1888-1965) American-English poet and playwright.
