The night was dark and dreary,
the road was deserted and eerie.
Not a soul in sight to come to my aid,
So, I got down on my knees and prayed.
I hoped for a miracle to overcome this misery,
I waited in vain, as the silence mocked me bitterly.
The quiet wind laughed at my folly, my faith,
The pain had now reduced me to a wraith.
I waited and waited for the storm to subside,
I waited and waited for shelter, a place to hide.
I hoped and wished for a companion in this dark night,
I hope and begged for a miracle, a ray of light.
A miracle finally, did come true,
Not in a form I had expected it to.
Despite not having hope, courage and destination in view,
A miracle happened, I stood up and continued.
