Rise in Her

She keeps her vigil through this night
wide awake within a state of utter clarity
keeping watch on all her borders
for the enemy draws near again
and she must be awake in order to defend
the sacred ground of her true being

He wanders in the dream world even now
seeking her within the mists
but she is no longer there for him to find
for she is in control of her own mind and soul

Cautiously, she paces as she waits
for the dark of this long night to end
and then she stops to feel within
the dawn of all creation rise in her...
