Dear Past Self

there will come an end to
this exhaustive night
no darkness can rest
in the brilliance of your light

one morning you will wake
to the sun caressing your face
and how can you resist
a touch of fortifying grace

the following night
when you go back to sleep
the fear you've harbored of waking up
will no longer reach so deep

I fear it makes no sense
yet I urge you to believe me
I remember just how tough that is to do
in time you will come to see
I know the story because I was you
