Afternoon Light


Original poetry by John and Shelia Chapman 2001

In the dim, in the dark
lonely and filled with fright
feeling my way, silence, hark
can I survive outside light?

the night closing in
the black shadows fell
grasped by stains of sin
My story I must tell

I cry in speechless prayer
Strength is near gone
Deliver me from this lair
Don't leave me alone!

A voice is heard
a quiet, whispering sound
It tells the wonderous word
salvation is found
