Patient dawn — Sam Goodman

The next time it gets light
I will awake with hope
And tonight as it gets dark
I will not fear

The next time it grows light
I will welcome the dawn
The next time morning comes
I’ll be reborn

The next time it grows dark
I will not hide away
The darkness does not extinguish
The light you bring

The next time I am afraid
I will remember you
The promises you made
Will still ring true

The next time darkness comes
I will be re-assured
That light is simply waiting
Over the horizon

The next time morning comes
I’ll try to celebrate
That your love lifts light
To shine for all around
