Whisper In The Darkness

Written by: Celeste Butler-Mendez

During times of sadness when tears were often shed,
the whisper never faltered in storms I faced ahead.

The lulling voice that lingered,
spoke softly in my ear.
Although it brought me comfort,
was difficult to hear.
So I tried hard to listen, 
but still, it wasn’t clear.

The whisper never faltered in storms I faced ahead,
or during times of sadness when tears were often shed.

It came in troubled waters,
that voice I thought unknown, 
and whispered through the darkness
when I was on my own.
That’s when I heard it clearly,
say “child, you're not alone."
