Have you ever crossed a foreign land,

On foot, or on your knees?

Have you ever felt within your heart,

The voice of a thousand pleas?

Have you ever known a love so deep,

No one would understand?

Have you ever wished you could bring life,

To a dying, broken land?

Have you ever sorrowed for a soul,

Whose face you’ve never seen?

Have you ever known that place,

Where love and hope take wing?

a star

You see the dark that few behold

And fight a faceless fear

As if at night, the clouds unrolled

Shadows feel welcome here

Time draws you forward, but the mind

Or something near the soul

Embraces tears, the mingled kind

That measures darkness whole

Polluted sanctuary, yet

There’s nowhere else to kneel

To bare your soul, the past regret

The emptiness you feel

How dark, so dark, before

The bated breath of dawn

Night tangible, the ghosts of yore

Who, senseless, struggle on

Sleep evades the sweetest dreams

Where answers dare to shine

Project instead nightmarish screams

And deeds of dark design

Caught within, among, it all

Your soul still bleeds its reason

The will of hope, evasive arc

Persists in spite of season

Draw in the draught that never dims

Where blood and water flow

And worth, not based on act or whim

Is yours to feel and know

Although unseen when dark surrounds

And shadows rush in cold

Let mercy breathe, and hope abound

Love’s broken wings enfold
