In Darkness & in Light

You sit in the womb

Of your own making

Dark and cold

So you can hear your own heart breaking


No sobs echo through you

Only tears fall on your palms

As you dream of your past

And nightmares that grow dark


Every arm that reaches in

Reaches to pull you out

But in your palms lie your eyes

In pools of tears that tremble out


You are waiting

For a new beginning that comes

To birth you into

The sunshine that burns


You can see the pinpoint

Of love that touches you

And crave for the touch

Of the one that adores you


A smile spreads like light

On the dew of dawn

From the horizon it begins distant

And grows as the darkness recedes until it’s gone


There lies his face

Shining before you

The sunlight you have waited for

Has now greeted you


New born in this spring afternoon

The flowers rise to greet you

As you sing into the breeze

And dance to the new tune


But soon the darkness descends

As the clouds grow thick around you

He will not be here

To hold and caress you


Now you wait again
With baited breath and deep drowning love
For him to return
And give you wings to shame the clouds above
