To Ease the Pain

Without order, chaos reigns
while without numbness, pain
permeates the atmosphere
in shadows drawing near

We have been graced with living light
the stars and moon to brighten nights
so long and lone and cold
while in the dark, a loved one holds

a trembling child
whispering in words so mild
that tears are spent
and spirit sent

to a realm of dreams where light will dance
beyond the fears of happenstance
where the sun on high
reflects the skies

in brilliant blues
of every hue
for some things never change
no matter how the world is rearranged

and love remains
to ease the pains
of life
