It’s Resilience

Setbacks and failures

give us the opportunity

to learn to be resilient

to improve in the future

from these disappointments

Remind ourselves

we have a choice

to move on

linger on

Let your beauty

linger on

Wait …

for the sunrise

awakening the charm

of winter’s beauty

shining in your eyes

there we’ll meet

on the isle of dreams.
