When Darkness Falls

When Darkness Falls When darkness falls across the land Are we able to understand? That light is still shining through Shedding its hues of rays onto all man We never know where darkness will show Though we’re aware that darkness doesn’t glow Like the light which shows hope in everything we see In every heart of someone we know When darkness falls into our lives what do we do? We wait patiently for the light to come shining through So we may close our eyes once more in total peace Knowing that behind the darkness, hope is always is waiting for me and you.

    This is such a beautiful write for such a dark contest! Of course I took my poem down the dark night and dismal route, but you probably guessed that already haven't you? I really enjoyed how you brought hope into the darkness, that light will eventually make it's way in, that is really awesome my friend! This is an extremely delightful and well written poem! What a harmonious piece, Great Work!!

    Barbara, it's OK. I've been not doing good on commenting either, life is distracting me. Thanks for stopping by though. Luv, Gail

    I agree Gail with a holistic heart we need not give up, crossing over darkness is the ever lasting light, love, vie
