Autumn dusk skies

Even when my pain is harshest

There is a light that still shines

Somewhere

Even as the autumn dusk skies

Send their scattering of shadows

Over the approaching night

As reminders come

And ghosts are calling

Often I also sense there is

An angel standing

Very close by

Reminding me that

In the past my heart was even more forsaken

Than it is now

So if

Dusk brings

This sense of peace

Within the darkness

I will draw close to it

Wrapping its blanket of healing

All around me

Finding my necessary consolation and relief

Gently held

Oh so tenderly

Within the angel wings of night
