The Darkest Night

Updated on September 7, 2013

From where doth come...the darkest night

while i wait ..with baited breath

Let me kiss and hold you tight,

hold me far ..from certain death

You own the moon ...the stars ..so bright

that have their space ..within the sky

all sparkling through ...the darkest fright

across the vast universe... they fly

Sweet darkness .. take and hold my heart

ease the pain.. of colored light

keep it close ..never to part

breath new life...into me tonight

You are the magic, that covets all

you, that turned and twisted me just right

no matter the season.. Summer or Fall

through Springtime breeze ..or Winter's night

Together my love... we will sift the sands

glimpse and count .. each golden light

walk under your moon .. holding hands

embraced so softly ..by darkest night

      I love your use of language here.

      The moon, the stars and magic all combine in your poem and come out beautifully. Nicely done.

      Superb write here, dearest Michael! Yes, we can face any darkness for we know we are never alone in such darkness as He will walk us through it to the other side.

      Very dramatic and profound piece.

      Love it!

      Up and more and sharing

      Hugs and much love from southern USA, Faith Reaper

      LOVE, "you own the moon, the stars so bright all sparkling through the darkest fright"...EXCELLENT...if during our darkest hours we could just go outside at night and let the moon and stars in the black, shine AT us as if to say, "Hey, we are HERE WITH YOU, and the LIGHT of Christ is IN YOU, so SHINE, SHINE, SHINE...the LIGHT always wins over darkness!

      That is the most encouragement from God: KNOWING that forever, the night always gives way to the dawn, every single day into eternity.

      Such an inspiration, you are! Your heart always manifests in all that you share. Voted up, beautiful and awesome. Sparklea :)

      So profound and beautifully written. I like these lines "You are the magic, that covets all

      you, that turned and twisted me just right

      no matter the season.. Summer or Fall

      through Springtime breeze ..or Winter's night".
