In The Night

It is in the night
where they find me
lost dreams
lost loves

Swooping in abruptly
trying to steal joy
stolen moments
stolen memories

In the midst of darkness
they attempt to threaten
seeking sorrow
seeking shame

Yet it is never truly dark
the light within shines
bringing comfort
bringing solace

Spirit stands erect
in perpetual defence
eternal flame
eternal hope

So, when darkness comes
and they float down
prayer saves
prayer heals

Special memories are kept
held in secret storage
always protected
always cherished

Remorse cannot exist
where love thrives
in the Spirit
in the night
