‘Tis a Dark Night

‘Tis a dark night.
Sun has fallen, moon not risen.
Not a star shines
in the depth of this night.

Save for one, off in the distance –
it emits its light.

Like a beacon to the traveler,
its warmth does comfort;
Like the love from your heart,
it fires my soul.

You are this light, its strength,
its might:
You are the love
from within this light.

But the sun shall rise
to extinguish this night,
Leaving but a memory
of this love and this light.

I stand at a loss,
for I know ’tis an end.
And yet,
tomorrow –
the darkest night all over again.

By, Darrell
