I remember I had a solo visitor, at the dawning of the day,
She filtered through my window, dressed in the sun’s pale morning ray.
We sipped silently on dewdrops as the world woke from its sleep,
And then she handed me a promise of a life wider than deep.
“I’m the hunter of all shadows, darkness can’t live when am near,
I will give to you a life that’s free of doubt, worry and fear.
Everything you’ve ever wanted will fall right into your palms,
Every path will be the right one and every ocean will be calm.“
“There’s just one thing,” I asked politely, “will I be happy once it’s done?“
But she slipped out from beside like the quickly setting sun.
I then found myself with an intruder after the world had gone to bed,
It seemed his clothing had some darkness woven into every thread.
As I stared, he told me boldly that I had nothing he would take,
He would come calling, just to tell me of a promise he would make.
“I’m your every fear embodied, I am your doubts inside a form,
I am the unknown in the ocean and the raging summer storm.
But I can give to you a life with endless tastes for you to chase,
Where your heart will never slow back down to a normal resting pace.
And if the day’s made you a promise that is better
Just remember it’s only when I’m around. You allow yourself to dream.“
