The long dark night that saw no end,
Stretched in an interminable restless waiting,
Sleepless night followed sleepless night,
Caught in the trap of Despair’s hopeless lament,
When my blackest night started at the day’s dawn,
God heard my pitiful cry and Love reached down,
I glimpsed for a moment a shimmer of light,
It transformed my uncertain next step,
Into the bold stride of a sure direction.
Night has lost its terrorising power over me,
My pleasure begins from my soul,
My “Anam Cara” is found and cherished,
My soul is captured by the joy of his welcome,
I can’t stop talking about this found friend,
Loyalty that stretches into eternity’s horizon,
This is my certainty, giving new words of praise.
The wasted effort of Hate’s angry words,
Are put aside for the promise of loyalty,
The short lived delight of endless deception,
Fade into the background when belonging is found,
Hate’s victory shout will become a pitiful whimper,
Eternity will remind them of their deceitful choices.
My lost nights were the beginning of hope,
The sobs of despair transformed into laughter,
My life is a testimony to loyalty’s transformation,
Poverty is turned into an abundance of trust,
My broken heart found where it belongs,
Captured by the words of truth and life,
And, Eternity’s never ending shouts of praise.
