A Sonnet

When you consider how your life is made,
And watched your fear turn cruelly to despair,
And seen the light draw outward into shade,
And felt the bitter silence in the air;

Then gone are all beliefs in God and hell,
And heaven too, since we only fall,
The world becomes an awful place to dwell,
And so terrible, since we seem so small;

But truth is that you are never alone,
And death is not a truth, so let it be,
Because you are the star that guides you home,
And you are the sun, and you are the sea;

There is one thing that will always be true:
That what lives in me is what lives in you.
