Darkness sacrifices

Imagine all of the happiness
The miracles
Like the heros in the war
Or the child just born
And the sudden burst of
Sunlight
In the clouds.
The good, simple things, too.

But what happened to the 
Wonderful darkness?
The death and violence
And the starless nights?
As they sacrifice themselves 
To give people
What we call hope?

How can we not appreciate it?
And take for granted our 
Miracles?
The darkness has always been there
For the light to shine over it.
And the light will always shine over it
Yet to respect the darkness
Seems unspeakable.

But see, the dark sacrifices itself
So that we do not take the light for granted.
And here I respect it
Because it is a beautiful thing.
