Darkness is dispelled and light covers the land.
|All’s well with me.
When my world crumbled
numbness spread through
body, mind and soul.
Darkness filled my being
muting the outside world.
a blessing, took on and I heard
not a single word of sympathy.
The sky overshadowed, a mass of grey
a sure sign of torrential downpour
unseasonal, unnatural with spring around.
Yet, even nature cannot break a cycle
meant to retain balance, rejuvenation.
At the daybreak, an orange-red sun
with a golden aura crept up the horizon.
Soon the sky rang with bird song
carried to my window on a windy flute.
And, I knew it is well with my soul.
Praise be to Him, my Heavenly Father!
