Secretly Shining

secretly shining

—————–

Torn from the sky

and flung to the ground…

Resting just a heartbeat from death…

And drifting in and out of delirium…

But even then….

At the moment when night seemed its

darkest…

And the shadows gathered

for yet another sumptuous banquet…

There remained a quiet power…

a warm glow…

never to be extinguished…

never to be destroyed…

and never to fade…

Whether now…

Whether then…

or until the end…

of time…
