In the dark

In the dark
I am reminded
Of my greatest fears
Of all the things
I didn’t do
Throughout all the years

In the dark
I remember when
I said so many things
Things that hurt
And things that cut
And stuff that sadness brings

In the dark
I can recall
All the hurts I felt
All the slights
And all the slurs
All the times tears welled

In the dark
When I can sleep
The fears are soothed away
My mind is clear
The thoughts all stilled
And soon a brand new day

In the dark
Our souls can mend
And our thoughts can still
We can heal
And bloom again
And thus renew our will
