Who Can Write A Poem In The Middle Of The Night

WHO CAN WRITE A POEM IN THE MIDDLE OF THE NIGHT

Who can write a poem in the middle of the night
When the darkness is still everywhere?
Who can find in the time of deep silence and doubt
Words of happiness and praise to God?

Who can in the lonely hours know
That the day will come with the joy of its light
And the difficulty of its duties?

Who can in this darkness here now
Pray to God
That love and goodness will come to us all
And Kindness be the one word the world most knows?

I add my voice to your prayer: That love and goodness will come to us all And Kindness be the one word the world most knows!
AND KINDNESS BE THE ONE WORD THE WORLD MOST KNOWS - What a simple, sincere and universal hope. Just yesterday a terrorist attack in St. Petersburg (Where one of my closest Poemhunter friends lives - she is unhurt) and a gas attack today in Syria - I dedicate my reading of your luminous poem to those victims.
