Just before dawn


I sleep
To block out
The dark
I fear

But you
Gently wake me
Take my hand
Lead me
Into the cool

It is the magic moment
Just before dawn
When the sky
Is no longer black
But not yet light
Just a promise
Of the day
To come

We stand
Watching the horizon

For the splash of colour
The spark of hope

With you
I can wait
In the dark
Without fear

    1. Thanks, M! I like the word you describe waiting as – precious. I wouldn’t have thought of that word straight away myself but it says something important to my heart. <3 Rachael
