Sometimes I wondered why the dark clouds were there,
Not realizing the sun was shining beyond it, bright and fair,
I hesitated to walk those rocky paths I found unsafe,
Lost and unclaimed, I yearned for a calling, like a waif;
Trusting that peace and happiness laid within my sight,
A brave step I took and then saw my glorious ray of light,
I gave up a dream that I thought was meant to be,
Only to find more meaningful dreams waiting right there for me.
