The Darkening Light

The darkening light

is all around

surrounding us/calling out to us

He was there when they christened you

and when you cried

when you fell from grace

when you found yourself

when you knew your place

Following on in your discarded footsteps

lying beside you in the midnight air

within the nightmares that haunt you

in the coldness of the empty air

Watching for when you come tumbling down

when life’s beaten you/when life’s injured you

when old age has ground you down

When your numbers up

no escaping that

the darkening light is just a footstep away
