In the darkness of the night

In the darkness of the night

there is surely a breach of light

between the sighs and tears

there is surely a waiting smile

in the pain that holds down at your throat

a strength is emboldened

in the despair of fading hopes

new wishes sprout

in the darkness of the night

a ray of light shines

for did he not say

‘the wound is the place where the light enters you’

flooded so in light

even the pain is bright.

(remembering  rumi)
