On those nights, dark and deep,
When my heart aches of loneliness,
Sleep beckons as I weep,
In dreams, at peace, my heart’s solace.
Sleep fast for morning nears,
Mercy bound on the swiftest wings.
Awaken, know no tears,
Dawn’s light awash with lasting hope.
Sunlight streaks through the sky,
Enters in my open window.
Awakened with deep sigh,
Dried tears find a smile in the sun.
The new day shines serene,
No thoughts of lonely aching hearts.
Challenges not extreme,
Until, once again, the night falls …
And loneliness sets in …
Listen to the palms…
