When the Light Shines In: OctPoWriMo 2019 Day One

I have decided to participate in the OctPoWriMo 2019 challenge: 31 poems in 31 days. I am not really a poet, but I like to be challenged. It also allows me to have a reason to write every day. Day One prompt is Dark Night of the Soul.

My soul suffered that dark night,

My grief ran so very deep.

The child I bore into the world,

Had entered his eternal sleep.

Remembering his smiling face,

The only thoughts on my mind.

I wrestled with the why of it,

No satisfying answers could I find.

But, when gratitude took control,

And I expressed thanks for the right

To be his mother and his guide,

In poured soul-sustaining light.
