No mystic gift, this sudden sight
received upon a starless night:
unrequested (though relief),
bestowing blessings on belief
beneath the hurt of burgled trust,
beyond all doubting and disgust:
- a present lending here from now
one lavish moment to allow
your mind to find that timeless space
after wreckage and disgrace,
to cease pursuit of answers sought
and rest without a solemn thought,
relaxing grips until release
reveals realms of inner peace
bequeathing truths through clarity
not yours to keep from charity:
confer your learning - freely teach
wherever darkness tends to preach,
endowing futures faith in light
and chance to win without a fight.
