How long the night…

How bright the future
When the past holds
So much sadness –

How dark the night
When the days
Were once so bright –

How withered I feel
Where once, not too long ago
I was so full of steel –

How harsh this life
Where those we love
Are dealt such strife –

How sad my heart
Where once upon a time
Such joy I felt –

How long the night
Where once my head
So full of music
Now fills only with tears
As I wait like you
For Him
To guide us Home –

Do we find Him in tragedy?
Or was he simply waiting for us?
Or, is He too, just a figment of our imagination?
