Ah! Do Not Turn Off The Light - Poem by Emmanuel George Cefai

ah! do not turn off the light
so long as there is hope
after this bleeding
this night
I could not lie with pain
Nor sleep
Yet bleeding had diminished:
Till there is hope
Do not turn off the light:
And when
The time cometh
Then like the stars at touch of dawn
The light will itself banish.
