waiting for morning

simply put we have another light
the window lets us see only the dark
we want to see the sun rise to mark
not just the day but also the right
to clarity and warmth each night
leaves us cowering but now hark
the noises distant cars dogs bark
the world is once again in flight
in adjacent spaces shadow reigns
the little light does not quite reach
the corners that still hide murk
nothing here of the past remains
we might have to learn or teach
but not while all the shadows lurk
