Faith lost is like a promise broken
somewhere in the night.
Unanswered pleas in words unspoken
push away the light.
Soft shadows fall into the soul,
then deepen as they take control
of golden rays and hopeful dreams
till nothing shines and little gleams.
Resist the seeping of the dawn;
believe the moon, the star.
Look up until all doubts are gone.
Remember whose you are.
