And Love, staring with teary eyes
looked Light in the face and asked
But Light had no reply.
So Goodness turned to Mercy and
together sat Love down.
Peace was asleep, and Joy nowhere to
Then Light began to cry, and
Darkness smiled a knowing, winning
He knew if he could make them rest a while,
in doubt and grief
and tears, he’d have his way the
whole world round, and flood it
full of Fear…
But Love and Darkness have a past,
a long way back they go.
For souls, they’ve wrestled, fought and won –
Then Love catching Darkness grinning grim, stood and
made it known unwincing.
Love’s tiredness, was but symptom of Love’s love, not a sign of defeat by Loves foes –
So Love cried out, and Light shone bright, and Peace woke up, and Fear resigned….
and Goodness and Mercy stood up and strong – pointing to the one upon the Cross who is himself all Life.
and as Grace spoke, the man bled, the Darkness fled.
And Love reigned once, and forever.
And Light had the final word.
