Love is kind,
Love is soft,
Love is sure.
Love seeps into the darkness,
Gently, allowing us to sleep,
Blanketing us in worry-free warmth.
When the bird whispers out into the dawn,
The light softly cleanses our soul,
We do not fear,
The darkness fades away.
The morning light has touched my soul,
I am no longer imprisoned,
I am at peace.
