In the darkness, I waited
Quiet. Calm. Still.
My heart was pounding in my chest.
Knowing it was coming.
Thinking and fearing it never would.
I closed my eyes and took a deep breath.
This is the time in between time.
Everything is still.
I opened my eyes and there was a hint of change.
Another moment passed revealing a glimmer of hope.
Hope takes its time, like the light of dawn.
Slowly, ever so slowly, the darkness gives way to shadows.
Shadows reminds us of fear because they are unknown.
There is no certainty in the unknown.
Another breathe and the unknown is known.
The light of dawn has broken through.
Hope’s tendrils are reaching through landing upon my heart.
With the first light of the morning, streaming through the trees.
Hope streams in, unavoidable, undeniable, known.
In the light, I wait.
