When itís dark and youíre alone,
Feel afraid, your heart is stone,
And the light feels a million miles away,
Oh, my child, turn to God and just pray.
Then youíll know just what to do,
And believe that it is true,
When you hear the voice of the angel call you:

Do not fear, do not fear,
Do not fear for God is here,
No more be afraid of the night.
Take my hand, take my hand,
Take my hand and you will stand,
Surrounded, protected by Godís perfect light.

When hit by the storms of life,
Troubled days and nights of strife,
You are crying in sorrow and pain,
Oh, my child, you must pray once again.
Then youíll stay forever strong,
Even when the night is long,
Till you hear the voice of the angel in song:

You can sing, you can sing,
You can sing to God your King,
No more in your sadness to cry.
You are free, you are free,
You are free to follow me,
Your spirit has wings and forever can fly.

For your days on earth are done,
And the battle has been won,
You will be with the One you adore,
Oh, my child, your can pray just once more.
Then you will not stand alone,
Never be left on your own,
When the voice of the angel calls you to come home:

It is time, it is time,
It is time to say goodbye,
You will be with your Father above,
In the light, in the light,
In the light forever bright,
And rest everlasting in His perfect love.

This is really a beautiful poem. I'm not usually a fan of poetry, but this really touched me. Nice writing.

A poem with a great message. It seemed the last line of each stamza lost the rhythm that was carried in the other lines. It may have been due to the line length. I enjoyed reading the poem. God Bless

I like your use of repetition here. It makes the poem more lyrical, almost like the words of a song.

I think some more attention to the meter would improve this poem a bit.

Thanks for sharing this!
