Hold Back The Night Poem by Cecelia Weir

Hold Back The Night

Rating: 5.0


I stand out dazed from wonder
Of what the next day will send.
Will I see the trees sway?
Or will I bend from a turbulent wind.

Will there be rain in the storm
Or this time will it pass me by?
Will there be destruction then labor
Oh, how many tears must I cry.

I long for that ray of sunshine
That shows far beyond the clouds.
But will it come and rescue me
Before my heart fails from doubts?

Hold Back the Night
It is my solvent prayer.
But I can feel it coming towards me
There is no one who seems to care.

Hold Back the Night
There is still a ray of hope.
If I manage to hold out
I believe I can still cope.

Hold Back the Night
I feel a change coming strong.
I glimpse a brighter tomorrow
My faults are from being done wrong.

Now waiting on the sun to set
Though darkness approaches fast.
Nothing is more important
Than finding the Light that will last.
