Valley

Walking through the valley
In the shadows of all past
Thought, hurt, journeying
It is cold here and the play
In light and shadow brings
Awe a comfort of sorts 
Because in between the pass
Is the strength to continue
Pressing ever forward on the
Leaves of doubt, despair, mixed
With the dappled light of suspension
Falling lightly into the arms of wonder
Reminders of love that bears us
Through the darkening times
Bringing afresh the cool awakening
Praying for the relief of the 
Full light of day
