Starlight

VJ’s challenge this week is about resilience, not the word but what it means to you. Now there’s a subject any spoonie can relate to.

heart candle flame

I wait, I hope and I pray
but words won’t come
at end of day

darkness falls on empty sky
and empty hearts pound
wondering why

blackest nightmare of my years
falling darkness
heavy tears

Then there comes a single star
in the darkest night
brighter still by far

for it is the starlight
every nightmare fears
the single candle burning bright
