The night will bow down

the darkness in me
was clothed with the night
of the shortest day
like a friend escorting me
to your feet
where I knelt to pray

As I looked up
I met your gaze
blazing like fire
intense with love
I asked that you would
bring light
into the hidden areas of
my heart

this day in which
night is long
is a prelude to your birth;
coming just before Christmas
it declares that you will come
to plant your light
into the darkest areas
of the earth

then, when you come,
the shadows in our hearts
are going to bow down
and darkness will
create a path
for the light
