His hand reaches out for mine
Grasping me and pulling me out of the black
And into the steadily growing dawn of hope.
As I glance at his sincere and loving eyes
I am reassured of my safety
He is my protection from the dark
He would never let its’ cold fingers ensnare me.
He leads me onwards
My fear of the future gradually dissipating
As I learn to lean on his strength.
What once looked bleak has become a challenge.
What was once impossible has become reality.
I begin to find joy and pleasure in my surroundings,
The beauty of a sunrise;
The promise of a rainbow.
The wonder of a newborn babies’ cry
My heart feels refreshed and renewed
A miracle, which could only be divine.
I catch my saviours’ eyes once more,
Whispering to him my love.
He answers with a promise
From his unrelenting heart :
“I will always be with you”
