I saw...

I woke up a beautiful day
and tried to throw
my black veil
way behind me.

I saw
beaches gathering forgotten dreams
kids playing with their little toys
all those I have never seen
all those I never dared to feel
lay bare before my eyes.

I saw
a neighbor smiling sweetly at me
two hands waving good morning
another sunny day
passing my way
leaving a dust of joy
leaving a carpet of flowers.

I saw
the world differently
the people standing beside me
but not anymore maliciously
I saw
I saw
I felt...
I saw...

This was a very nice poem!
It's very vivid and it really made me think to open up our eyes and take in as much beauty as we can!
really liked this part:

I saw
a neighbor smiling sweetly at me
two hands waving good morning
another sunny day
passing my way
leaving a dust of joy
leaving a carpet of flowers.

It is good when your eyes start seeing and your heart starts feeling the good that does exist out there in this world.....I hope you keep that sight, Eva.
