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

Gentle waif of summer’s dream,

Your face shines with a smile of glee

With voice of sweetest laughter

The twinkle in your eyes wink at me

Such joy lives within you

Sweet as morning dew

That light that shines so brightly

Shines from deep within thee

I haven’t lived the days you do

And I know not what troubles you

But the warmth that you exude

Saves me from the winter breeze

Like tulips in bloom your lips part in smile

Childlike innocence in your eyes

If angels lived on this cruel earth

You, an angel, are sure to be

So I write you this gift of rhyme

For the only gift I have are words

May your beauty endure till the end of time

And may the one to gaze upon it…be me
