INSIDE THE LIGHT

INSIDE THE LIGHT

A Poem by Miss Sharon
"

Written after the untimely death of my only son.

"

 
When clouds of darkness gather 'round
And stillness flaunts its somber sound,
I'm helpless to deny...
That things will never be the same
I see your face, I speak your name...
Oh how I wish to die!

The mem'ry of the life you had
Cut much too short, it makes me mad...
My heart is torn in two.
I love you like no other could.
I'd die for you...you know I would...
The world had not a clue!

When weeping ends I kneel to pray
And wish this night would turn to day...
I'm tired beyond belief.
Each sleepless night with endless pain
Now holds me fast with aught to gain...
Dear God, I need relief!

But...then I heard a gentle voice
Upon the winds of my own choice
Inside the light which shone.
My name was whispered like a prayer
I heard you say, ''Please don't despair.''
''You'll never walk alone.''
