The Meaning
Author: Ing Twi Demalah


Itís the sadness of a rainy day
Erased by the sun breaking through the clouds

Itís all the arguing and bickering
Made sweet by the open arms of forgiveness

Itís the stress of endless, sleepless, nights
To see your child smile for the first time

Itís yearning for a love you cannot have
Yet daring still to love

Itís nights I cannot remember
With friends I will never forget

Itís the failure
That makes your strive to be better

Itís pain and hurt and loss
And one touch heals it all

Itís not what you go through during life
But what you have at the journeys end.

And laugh aloud at death and shout
You cannot break my spirit

Nor the bonds of friendship I have forged
Nor Silence the voice of my pen

You cannot stop me from loving
For it is these things that matter

These I have where ever I shall go
For not even you death
Can ever take my soul
