Night Trek

I walk in the darkness of moon’s shadow
Neath the dark stars of night’s sky
A path traveled mostly by day
Now traversed by the black of night
Each step, a step in the dark
Wishing for a lighted way 

Hoping not to have lost the way
Fumbling through the black shadows
Feeling the coldness of the dark
No illumination from the sky
Nothing but the dark of night
Wishing for the light of day 

Oh but for the sun of day
With the light showing my way
Drive back the dark of night
Push back the cloak of shadows
Burn away the black of sky
End the reign of the dark 

Only sun may end this dark
The light for beginning of day
Change black to blue of sky
That I may find my way 
Chase back the dark shadows
Brought out by the night

Let the day end this night
Light now my path of dark
Shove back the night shadows
Turn this night into day
So I can find again my way
Let the sun rise into the sky 

Turn the black into blue sky
End this dark and blind of night
That I may be on my way
Instead of lost in this dark
Hoping for light of day
Scared of night’s shadows

I fear the shadows of the night
Of this black sky so very dark
Till the day then I know my way

Thank you Lyric Man, this is the only Sestina I've written as the scheme and meter are tough to blend and make sense. Greatly appreciate your time and comment.
