"Don't cry because it's over; smile because it happened."

-Dr. Seuss

In the darkness of my heart,
I wept alone.
Broken in all, not in part,
I was alone.
No light to illuminate the dark,
I walked alone.

I cried out,
The silence roared.
I wanted out,
The silence consumed.
The life I dreamed about,
The silence scorned.

Then reached out a hand,
My soul did fly.
Led me to the Promised Land,
My soul was relieved.
A journey vast as the desert sand,
My soul was saved.

I cried out, the Savior heard;
I was free.
I belonged as a sheep in His herd,
I could breathe.
A recipient of the promise in His Word,
I did sing.

The gift of everlasting life
He paid for with His blood.
No more unending night -
Jesus died for me.
I basked in Heavenly sunlight,
Because He saved my life.
