Been in a dry spell lately. I started this one about six years ago. Finally finished. Hope you all like.

Alone in the night 
A memory stood 
Naked and cold and veiled 
Fueled by the lie
Of destiny robbed 
A ghost of itself 
In hopelessness wailed 
In fear the memory, frozen; 
Heard a call from deep in the night 
Apprehensive heart flooded with passion
A rhapsody to run to the light
The dirge of sorrow subsiding
With dawn overtaking the night
The substance of hope now rekindled
Evidence undeterred yet unseen
The call of the fathers resembled
The one forming and coming to be
The groan of creation upon it
Made by the Son to be free
The chains of religion now broken
The shackles of fear dissolved
Windows of Heaven reopened
Overwhelmed by the power of Love
Strength made perfect in weakness
Basked in the glow of the call
Gates of hell lying in ruins
With Grace overtaking the wall
Fear and hate shamed and defeated
And Life freely offered to all
