Where Are You?

In stillness of the night,
I heard a voice cry out,
“Where are you?”
Lights were out—
In the darkness
I could not tell if it was my voice or not.
A second time…
“Where are you?”
Is this a dream, I wondered?
Is this me that cries in darkness?
Who am I seeking?
“Awake and see… I am here.”
It made no difference if I was sleeping,
Knowing in the dark I was blind.
Only when I saw my own darkness…
Chained, alone, waiting…
Could I step out and begin to walk,
In hope; in forgiveness; in love.
