When the year is at its darkest (poem)

03 Dec

The lighter days are coming

When the year is at its darkest

When the year is at its darkest, with the sunshine far away,
And without that warming sun, it becomes another cold day.
On this dark winter’s day you may find it hard to make it through,
But even when the world is cold, your heart will be warm in you.

This day will not linger, its darkness was never meant to last,
And without even trying, this day will fade into your past.
Where this day will take you to, there may be no way of knowing,
But even if you rest a while, this day will keep on going.

Tomorrow will always come to us, bringing to us its light,
Sending whispers of hopes new dawn, spreading into this dark night.
It may seem far away, and on the horizon barely seen,
But the dawn is coming, bringing a new day all fresh and clean.

When the year is at its darkest, hopes light can always be found,
It may seem to be hiding, but it’s always somewhere around.
Somewhere not too far away, someone will have some they can share,
Then one day within your own heart, you will find hopes light is there.
