Moonlight - Poem by Danny Speicher

The night was dark and the road was lonely
And, I found myself wishing for a friend
A travel companion to keep me safe
One that will help me to my journey’s end

I found that companion within the Moon
With Her white Light radiating so bright
With her kind glow giving sight to my path
Illuminating the dark roads of night

I saw southern clouds rolling in quickly
To my dismay, there was naught I could do
Yet, I still fell in love with the Moonlight
Knowing darkness I’d soon have to go through

The clouds rolled in sooner than I had hoped
And the rain, it poured, like tears from above
And, for what seemed like several lifetimes
I was without the fond Light that I loved

Despite duration of my endeavor
The clouds rolled back to display brighter Light
Brighter than even that glow from before
I praised God for His care through this dark night

And, through the night, She kept me company
But, then gently in the East, the dawn rose
And, I saw what the Moon was reflecting
Sunrise was greater than anyone knows

For, I saw the fruition of the Light
I saw, in glory, that which I had chased
And, drove slowly in complete speechless awe
While my focus on the road was unphased

So, in the darkness, when the moon shines naught
Even when the moon returns from its shade
Focus first on the road laid before you
And, look for the dawn of Light, He has made
