Vigil of Easter

darkness hangs on
    death's grip will not ease
        will not loosen
        there is no story to be told
        once the final page of life is written
    the door of the tomb slams shut

now, light seeps from the tomb
    outside, life continues, while
    inside the tomb is death
yet, from where there is only darkness
    light begins to shine

death's grip is not loosened
    death itself is no more

light shines in the darkness
