Chase the light

The still of night, cool and fresh all over my skin
My arms wrap around the small of my waist to keep the warmth in
Rustling and cracking catch my attention
A deep bark echo’s through the air
An array of dark shadows fill my view
Scattered clouds silently sweep by
There she is, in full light, bright and white
Her radiance, her comforting glow
The stars her company, they twinkle with glee
I surrender to the breeze
She quiets my mind
Reminding me to chase the light
To search for peace
To be calm
Reassuring me everything will be ok
She takes watch
I melt into the night
No longer afraid of the dark
I sleep with the truth
Light awaits me
