I Wondered Through the Night

I wondered through the night,

In search of a restful mind.

Caught in Wisdom’s sight,

she asked me, “Who” am I.

I felt I could not say,

for time to time, I change.

The moon reflects my way,

from Full to New I range.

I wonder through the night,

descending downward evermore.

Some creatures hid and some took flight,

but at last I reached her shore.

How is it that you call to me?

And wash me in your waters?

I crave your love and how you see,

my light and all my sorrows.

I wondered through the night,

and found it was a dream.

It helped me heal my haunted plight,

for it was not my state of being.

Mother and darkness are the same;

she holds me in her womb.

Unfortunate people often mistake,

her Darkness for a Tomb.
