New Day's Light

Troubled at times,
by splinters
against raw wounds.
The wood
has no comfort
in its grain.
I could never do
as you did.
My fear
would crush me
before the first nail
found flesh.

They broke bone,
infused your blood
with the fiber of the tree.
A sapling grown tall
with purpose beyond
Dark clouds
hover in the sky.
The moment
feels emptied of life.
Help my troubled heart
to find solace
in the new day's light.
