This is a lovely piece about darkness. I love Potia’s work, she’s a wonderful person and an inspiring Druid, do check out her blog.
Sweet Darkness will you hold me?
Let me rest in your embrace?
The day is harsh and painful
Please hide my tear streaked face.
Gentle Darkness will you hold me?
Let me feel your soothing touch?
My heart is sore, my head is full,
I need your peace so much.
I know that I can find you
When the moon has gone away.
In star lit skies I see you
Until the break of day.
Now dawn begins Her journey
She starts to paint the sky.
Sweet Darkness I must leave you
For in daylight you are shy.
And I must walk in sunlight
Beneath the painful glare,
Where other people judge me,
But some of them still care.
Gentle Darkness I will find you
When day retreats from night.
I’ll rest within your presence,
Find strength again to fight.
