The hard way

I saw my level path turn steep and dark
I saw a tunnel black without a light
I hesitated wondering how to stop
But seemed intent on death,on sudden flight.

No human being held out their warm hand
They left me all alone in anguished pain
Yet how should I in that state right decide
What was best for me, what made a claim?

The golden warmth like clouds from rising sun
Wrapped me all around till we were one
There was no speech ,no person and no blame
No demand, no order, love remained.

Beyond despair I found this unknown care.
A sheet of tears ran down my poor face bare.
