When My Songbird Wakes Me Up

From a dark place of nightmares
a songbird wakes me up
that sings his joyful song
of a new dawn
underneath my bedroom window

I get up and look outside
the world is covered with snow
Like a new blank page on which
it invites me to write my poetry

And my songbird continues
to sing his song in my heart
until all dark is gone
And as his tunes fill me
with light and love
my poetry starts to write itself
on the page of a new day
