Darkness Never Lasts Long

The night may be lonely. Endless. 
The dreams may feel empty. Frightening.
The bed sheets may feel like a cold comfort,
and you're barely holding on.
But hang on.
Because the darkness never lasts long.
At its end of each night, the sun comes up again.
Warm and fortifying.
Gentle like a mother's kiss and strong like a dad's embrace,
the sun envelopes the earth's children in its tender love.
So hang on.
The darkness never lasts long.

    I love this!! Such a nice, well-rounded piece! I especially love the line “ the sun envelopes the earth's children in its tender love.” there’s a great, really natural rhythm created be the short and long sentences. Beautiful!

    This piece is so heartwarming. I've struggled with insomnia and have been scared of the dark (go ahead, laugh at me :P), and I always tell myself "there will be sunrise at the end of a long night". Amazing piece!
