Light in the Darkness A poem by Erin McSparron I was in the a depth of darkness, That seemed so very extreme. Because it wasn't long ago, That life inside me beamed. Surrounded by a glorious light, I knew the life within. I felt great joy and love complete- Excitement for life to begin. But something happened and the light went out, And suddenly my baby was gone. I didn't have the time to prepare, For the journey I was on. And just like leaving a bright room, And entering the dark. My path ahead became black unknown, And my stumblings left a mark. I felt around to find my way, And reached for lights to turn But the darkness stayed all around, No matter how I yearned. I had so many expectations, And I was excited to be blessed. With life of a new little person, For whom I'd ever be Impressed. But before all my goals could come true, My world was turned around. And all my wishes, hopes, and dreams, Came crashing to the ground. So now I'm left with memories, Of the life that I once shared. I look around and no one knows, Or sees how much I cared. They say that life needs to go on. And on Jesus to depend. So now I weep and wait for joy, And pray this dark night to end. The longer that I stayed in this place, The more I started to see. That though I was now without a child, My God was there with me. The light didn't come just overnight, And show the path ahead. But slowly, surely I felt comfort, And the light began to spread. So turn to God when without hope, For the light only He can provide. And know that you are never alone, Because Jesus is by your side. ~a candle is burning in our home for you.
