The Deer

She stands there so all alone
by the dark deserted country road.
The wind and rain are stronger now,
she shivers in the cold.

Her eyes try to pierce the darkness
to see what lies ahead.
She is afraid to move forward;
so she stands very still instead.

The rain has stopped and the
clouds have been pushed away.
She sees the moon now trying
to guide her along the right way.

"Oh thank you, Mr. Moon, my friend"
she cries into the night.
"I thought I was all alone here,
but you have given back my sight."

Cautiously, but full of hope,
she takes that first brave step.
The moon has washed away her fears
that the cold harsh darkness kept.
