The light’s gone dark,
What happened here?
Where once breathed trust,
Now trembles fear.
In a shimmering current, in the heart of a storm,
The pebbles are drowning for want of the morn.
Beyond coals and blue ash, the dull gleam of what fell,
‘Ere the waters have gathered, a redemptive well.
The parting of seas and the skies from their stars,
As bright as a moment untouched by our time.
What stands between us and what seems to be far?
Hearts speak loudly for the denial in mind.
