Someone I know is ill today

Someone i know is ill today
but it’ll be alright.
Time and rest have always worked
their magic overnight.

Someone i knew was ill before
at a time that mattered most.
But then I carried hope around
until it turned to dust.

Each Spring I feel the same desire
to turn things back around.
To plant the hopes that water urges
slowly from the ground.

Someone I know is ill today,
so I will go and do
the things that I still yearn to do
for someone I know—
for you.
