Afraid of the Dark

As kids, we may be afraid of a night so dark it hurts.
But in life, what role does darkness really play?
Does it deserve all of the negative attention it gets, then skirts?
Or is there another thing about darkness to say?
Perhaps darkness holds together the light, just as the night holds together the day.
One without the other couldn't exist, could it, and perhaps it is good that way.
So when darkness ensues and surrounds us so dearly.
Maybe it's bringing us closer, and we should see that more clearly.
