Darkness

Sometimes when I'm frightened and darkness fills my night I speak into the darkness to chase away my fright Darkness I say I know you're but a cover to beauty sweet and kind and if you give to me tomorrow these things I know I'll find the lustre of a sunrise lighting waves across the bay a field of flowers waving as with the breeze they play rivers that run from snow capped peaks as for a shore they search steeple bells that call to all from a friendly country church the taste of cool fresh water from a bubbling mountain spring the call of springtime swallows returning on the wing the blushing of the setting sun as it paints the dying light pulling with it after the blanket of the night Darkness you do not take these things you but grant a short repose all is safe within your keeping until the morning glows so darkness I will give to you my heart and soul to keep until I feel the dawning just cover me with sleep
