there is a darkness
that sets within me
it rises with the sun
and when I think Iíve become exhausted
it rises again, with the night
this darkness, like a friend
familiar in all the wrong places
resides not at all within my heart
but in the rest of me
for in my heart lives light and love
beauty, grace and most of all
where someday light will shine
burn out the night
and death will end my days
until that time
darkness, friend of night
shroud to all of light
crash upon the shore
let salt lick away your waves
let the cusp of time fade away.
