through this vast desert,
it seems that I will never
be able to reach my destination,
for all I see around me,
are vast stretches of brown sand
which seems to extend
It is still daytime now
and I am finding it
so difficult already,
what will happen when the sun goes to sleep?
who will guide me
towards my goal?
I feel disheartened,
and am almost ready to give up,
but then I hear God telling me
it doesn’t matter whether it is day or night,
what will always be at your side
and lead you,
will be your inner guiding light
and that dear child
always remains awake
no matter whether it is day or night!
