These are the things I’ve come to know,

The Sun sets in the west, in the east it will rise,

But with abounding light lies a shadow.

 

When hope dwindles, the spirit sinks below

Into a cavern deep, dark, dry.

These are the things I’ve come to know.

 

As summer ends, the air swirls cold,

An earth yearns for color and is denied,

But with abounding light lies a shadow.

 

Peaceful days sense storms will follow,

And held back tears are painful cries.

These are the things I’ve come to know.

 

With snuffed dreams, nothing to show,

Life stuck frozen in fear and wondering why,

But with abounding light lies a shadow.

 

A fire needs just a spark to glow,

And a candle still warms a frosty sigh.

These are the things I’ve come to know,

But with abounding light lies a shadow.

 

-LJM

Psalm 91:1
