I stare out my window

on a cold, rainy day.

And I ask God

why the skies are so gray.

As I watch all my hopes

and dreams fade away,

I wonder if I 

will ever have a say.


God answers back,

to my deepest surprise. 

It's almost as if I see Him

with my very own eyes.

He says, "Do not fear.

Keep the people you love

very, very near.

And most importantly, 

trust with your heart.

I will carry you through

your days that are so dark."


All of a sudden,

I am filled with a peace.

The weight has lifted off my shoulders

and my deamons have ceased.

As I stumble away,

I know in my heart

that there will never be

another day so dark.
