Beyond the darkness, a new world comes
Beyond the far horizon, the sun will return again,
Though darkness be with us now, its shadows will not remain.
These dark times will depart at the coming of the sun,
For always light follows darkness, somewhere the dawn’s begun.
The spinning of the Earth brings to us both darkness and light,
As soon as the darkness begins, tomorrow is in sight.
It may be a while yet before its light and warm once more,
But it is coming, for it has never failed to come before.
Upon the hint of dawns first light, we can begin to see,
The world tomorrow is bringing to us, to you and to me.
It will not be yesterday, for that was a darkness ago,
And what is coming after the dawn, we have yet to know.
The dark night may have been a struggle, so hard to get through,
That the world coming with this dawn, is so different and new.
Perhaps the darkness changed many things, that we are now afraid,
But in this new dawn, love can be found, and a future remade.
