Original poetry: Night Fall

Darkness falls as the sun sinks behind the clouds

Birds fall silent as they tuck their heads beneath their wings

The Earth is covered in shadow as the stars glide soundlessly across the sky

The moon follows in close proximity, covering the world in a nightly glow

It’s time to drift into the world of dreams,

As you lay your head to rest in preparation for the new day.

God’s grace is sufficient for you my child

As you travel down the path He has set for you.

Blessed be the name of the Lord, Amen.


This poem was inspired by the last episode of my friend Jen’s podcast. As I was listening to her tell of poems that she was afraid to share, the Holy Spirit laid this poem on my heart. If there’s someone out there who is going through a trial in their life, then this poem is for you. If you’ve lost a loved one, this poem is for you. No matter what trials you’re facing, let these words be of comfort for you and give you hope in knowing that God will never leave you nor forsake you. I pray that He will give you strength to face the trials in your life. May God richly bless you and keep you wrapped safely in His loving arms, for His grace is sufficient for you. Have a blessed day.
