When the days grow longer,
   And the nights seem endless,
With dawn an eternity away.

When friends are elusive,
   And family are there,
But you wonder for how long.

Maybe it is time to look
   At a place you may hate
It is time to look inward.

The surprise you may find,
   Is a you you never knew,
The one only known on High.

I speak of the you created,
   Before the world of pain and disease,
Created what you think you are.

I speak of another you with a soul,
   An inner life not defined by this world,
By what a spiritual life can bring.

The Dawn can be Now if you Look!
