Failures and losses, I was all alone
Stuck in a corner, with a broken bone.
Darkness is a leech, sucking the lights
Dimming and dulling, every beam of bright.
Love and hope are birds, they flew away
Survive, they won’t in dark, can’t blame the way.
I look in the mirror, I see a shadow
Lost so deep, in the giant cloud of dark.
You knocked the door, you screamed my name
As a stubborn rock, you sat at the door.
Your voice guided the way, to the light
But lost cause I am, just didn’t move.
You broke the door, you pulled me out
In came with you the flew away birds.
Your light was glaring, burned the darkness to dust
I healed by the minute, like from a sickness.
Now I look in the mirror, I see something new
I see myself smiling, bright and shining.
