Dark of the night

I ran through the woods on a starry night
At peace I felt as all alright 

The chill air stung as I breathe
I turned to see what little path I leave

Out of the sudden left reason to pause
It came it the dark of night without cause

It flashed brighter than a lightning rod
A streak of beauty painted by the hand of God

Never before had I seen brilliance more
I became the hungry being fed by the poor

As quickly as it came it disappeared
But in my memory forever it seared  

The light showed the woods on the darkest of night
I turned again and remember my miles of plight
All ran without sight

It may not have stayed 
But heavy on me it weighed

Never again did I run in the dark
I pray for the day I see another spark
