Something in Nothing

Standard

.
When the night gets dark
And all I see is nothing,
I’ll close my eyes
And feel the warmth that surrounds me.
I’ll close my eyes
And look at everything I want to see.
The night
May be empty,
Cold,
And vast,
But my heart and mind
Are whole,
Warm,
And blessed beyond belief.
Even when you think there is nothing,
There is always something.
