Why the darkness
why the night
These endless days without the light
Oh shine the sun
shadows cast
If only sights of brightness past
Days of blindness
nothing seen
What does all this darkness mean
With opened eyes
scan the dark
Catch a glimpse of just one brief spark
Grab and hold it
grasp in hand
Disappears like fine slipping sand
Why the darkness
why no light
These endless days of endless nights

  2. Great poem, J! 🙂
    I love to read rhyming poems aloud. I agree with Chris…this would make a beautiful song. 🙂
    I am akin to the darkness and night…but, love the daytime, too…especially the early dawn when the light is just beginning to appear again. 🙂 I think the darkness (in nature, and in our emotions/spirits) always makes us appreciate the light more.
    HUGS!!! and ❤ !!! 🙂
