Darkness Fell

image

Darkness fell on a lovely city
Dimming all its lights
It dragged in fear with synchronicity
Turned a sun filled day into night

Winds extinguished burning candles
Tears were shed from far
Unremorseful cowardly vandals
A night sky without stars

Its not a battle for us to win
Or a war for us to lose
Its a wake up call for us to begin
To love one another and choose

To live in darkness, allow its reign
Or bring stars back to our skies
To let fear rule the hearts in pain
Or invite the sun to rise

    Heartfelt, moving and poignantly written Lily. RIP to those who lost their lives in the horrific Paris attacks last night. Today we are all French. Love and blessings dear poet, Deborah.
