That miracle sometimes feels like standing all alone in the dark.
Waiting for the sun to rise so there is some light in my life.
Or until it gets too cold and the numbness inside isn’t all I feel anymore.
As the cold surrounds me and my hands start to tingle and I know it’s time to go in.
But before I walk away I look around one more time in the hope that one day I will see a halo over this dark lake.
The only lake that makes me feel so calm and alive after a long day of frustration.
