when Darkness began
and the future of the world seemed bleak
when Darkness began
and a loved one left too soon
and a serious illness was diagnosed
a pain wouldn’t leave
finances were unsettled
the future was frightening

in the Darkness
love, hope, joy, peace spoke softly
and the Light that was to come
was lit
a small flame
but a flame of hope 

reminders that somewhere in the world
at the most difficult of times
the moon still shimmers
the sun still shines
the stars still twinkle
someone is praying
someone is believing
that there is hope

even in the Darkness
when Darkness began
