Excavation

I dig in the dark for you,
go where you are.
Why do you hide in the shadows,
as if that is where you belong;
where you are safe?
Don’t believe the lies.
The dark promises escape,
Invisibility,
Freedom to roam,
No one cares,
No one claims to care.
It doesn’t hurt,
When the darkness clouds the pain.
Look up and see,
The light won’t expose you.
It will hold you in warmth,
comfort,
truth that sets free.
Salve for the wounds,
The scars seen, felt, touched.
You are not a leper to be cloaked,
Hiding at the edge of life,
Fallen deep into the night.
Don’t believe that I will ever,
stop digging where you’re buried,
until I unearth and set you in,
Light.
