Black Dog

Wake up bleary eyed
Long night, no sleep, furrowed brow
Enveloped by dread 

Winter all year round
Surely some sun must break through
Not today my friend 

Back to black, sink fast
No hope, empty and saddened
Deeper in despair 

Go away-don’t care
Numb with bleak desolation
Pray for the long sleep 

A child’s cry, spring bud
Blue sky and toffee ice-cream
Picnics, holidays 

Patiently waiting
Chink of light at tunnel’s end
Wake up, thaw out. Smile!
