I wake at night;
and peer through the darkness.
Tossing and turning 
the minutes seem like hours
and all looks bleak. 
Hope is elusive;
it's hard to find reasons
to expect the light
will return. 
My thoughts race unhindered
on a course to nowhere. 
I can't stop my mind from
betraying my heart. 
There's an enemy that invades
my head. 
His whispers are shouts
in the night. 
I know that he is repelled by light. 
He will back away
with the approaching day. 
Hold on till then,
I tell myself.  
His words are lies.
You know that. 
The Light will dispel the darkness;
It is life
and the Life lives in me. 
I close my eyes
and reach out 
hands outstretched,
grasping for hope;
remembering His promise
to never leave me. 
Thank you!
His strong arms hold me
in the darkness.
I relax
secure in this quiet shelter
waiting for the morning's joy.
