We have cried now for those who’ve died, but then we saw dreams walking
And then we heard hope talking, and watched new-found peace dawning
On the day of restoration after insurrection and so many years of frustration
Now we choose to make this home our home again as an invaluable treasure
To measure with vigilant care never sleeping, always keeping watch
Yes, the dark night has ended, by the light and grace of God, a new day dawning
With daunting challenges, yet with no more savage malic in high places
This is our day and time of hopeful anticipation, courageous dedication
Of holy purgation, and glorious acclamation with no condemnation
Yes, we’ve cried, but the nightmare is over, our dreams have been awakened

Such a positive and truthful poetry, Jonathan. May God give strength and fortitude to America and its citizen and Joe Biden be a great and noble President. Great post.
Indeed. I pray each day for our new President and all leaders of the world. Thank you and bless you!
Always welcome Jonathan. Let our Presidents all over the world do good for people.
Beautiful poem. I pray too for all their continual safety, that decency once again comes to American. And those that helped create the terribleness – awaken and realise, never to allow such an error of judgement again.
O yes, I certainly agree! Thank you for your comment, and blessings to you.
