When The Darkness Comes

~When The Darkness Comes~

When the darkness comes
Are we left to be totally blind?
Are we left feeling completely numb?
Forgetting about the memory of light~

When total darkness arrives
No shadows will remain 
Are we still able to survive?
Without its memory to keep us sane~

The light will continue to burn the wick within our souls
If only we close our eyes when the darkness comes
The darkness can’t take away what the light has already shown
The strength and courage we all earned from living wisdom~

So next time when the darkness returns
Be not afraid of not seeing the existence of shadows
Because within us all is a light that will continue to burn
From the rays that ignites the wick within our souls~
