A new poetry form for me

Trying my hand at writing tanka, a Japanese poetry form composed of lines of 5-7-5-7-7 syllables.

Dark and gloomy day
Raindrops fall upon my cheeks
Blending with my tears
Sadness wraps me in blackness
And I long to see the sun.

Each day a new dream
To build a future upon
Each new dream a promise
Of many happy times for us
Through forever and beyond.
