Dear Jesus

When my hour-glass has run out
When my blip in time has passed

When I no longer struggle on this path
When I can finally just take a breath

When all my sorrows are gone
When all of me is once again whole

When voices are no more
When demons have vacated my front porch

When before my eyes my life flashes
When the gates open and I pass through

When I cross the other side
When I sit dangling my feet from my cloud

When my eyes are bright
When I sing a happy song

Eternally grateful for being forgiven
But hopefully allowed to ask just this one question

Dear Jesus could you leave an extra light on?

You already know this…

But I am awful afraid of the dark…
