Endless darkness envelops me.
It covers me, It oppresses me!
Within the dark, my thoughts run rampant;
With voices disembodied.
They tire me, really tire me!
They frighten me.
They leave me-
To anxiously wanting.
I lie patiently-
Wanting for the first rays of light.
The first glimmer of a glow!
I see upon the distant horizon-
As I lay and wait…
Each second seems like eternity.
I close my eyes;
Don’t know what I want to see;
Or visualize what I wish to see-
As I lay in reverie…
I open my eyes-
And I see-
The most wondrous sunrise.
I have yet to see how boldly taken hold.
The same oppressing dark-
Now has vanished ever so quickly.
And in its wake is left a blushing sky-
So filled with color!
And sheak too but in crystal tones-
Of a brand-new world dawning!! …
