At Last

by Karl Waldbauer

Life, sweet life, is on the move.
I saw it envelope you.
The pall of death was lifted that day,
you said it was so, yourself.
No more veils of mauve and black,
away with the miasma of gloom.
I will vanquish the ghosts of your past,
your tears were like acid rain.
You can stand naked in golden sunshine,
I will be there at your side.
Heaven itself will open its gates,
for love radiates from you.
Now, celebrate the victory of life,
at last you can be joyous again.

The use of light in this piece is striking. It was like sunrise. Dark being vanquished by the light. Exquisite imagery that brightens the soul.
