Truth Dost Tarry

Fear not, truth dost tarry
Lingering long and wide
Stretching every so often
in sunny spots between now and eternity

Fear not, truth dost tarry
Filling our souls with light
Even during our darkest nights
and most unconscious moments

Fear not, truth dost tarry
Lingering long after our lies, deceit
decoys, avoidances and confusion
Even as total blindness overtakes us

Fear not, truth dost tarry
Awaiting the day, hour and moment
when we’re ready to receive its gift
and live with open eyes
