Sorry for the strangeness of the format. MS Word is the spawn of the devil, after all. ^_^
Through the darkness there shines a light

Teasing, guiding, never nearing

A child's voice calls from my soul

A plea to stop my fearing

No night is ever black, with the stars still shining

And it is for their cold embrace that I sit here pining.

His presence calls, eternal warmth

the hand of friendship extended

And I too shocked to grab at first

That which had always been pretended.

No night is ever black with the stars still shining

And it is for their cold embrace that I sit here pining.

But he will return, he always does

His sweet smile is for me alone

He is water to my wilted flower

A lantern beckoning me home

Courage and faith shall spring reborn

Tearing my sorrow asunder

And I shall accept this fragile gift

With my awakened wonder

No night is ever black with the stars still shining

But no longer for their cold embrace will I sit here pining.

With healed heart shall I rejoin the rest of humanity

Secure in the knowledge that there is one who is only there for me.
