Reaching for love , Conquering Darkness

Darkness and despair, light is disappearing,
Hope is overwhelmed, fear keeps building,
I extend my hand, praying for guidance
But the embodiment of death arrives, wishing my end with calmness
In the midst of surrender, the devil waits
But then i hear a voice, which echoes '' my love do not despair your fate''
A hand reaches out with the promise to give wings and a prayer
With wings i soar, out of the unforgiving crater,
And a new found strength to live and not to fold i gained through my prayer
Light has shone and the darkness has waded,
Memories of suffering and depression all but faded,
I search for the voice which gave me strength,
A maiden appeared with love overwhelming,
She gave me solace, felt like i was soaring,
Our hearts interlocked, never threatening to tear asunder,
At that moment a new resolve was awakened,
Take me darkness, leave me broke, shatter my spirit and leave me shaken,
But my love will endeavour, never having to fear consternation
