This was written from a poetry prompt, in about two minutes. The prompt was the phrase used for the title of this poem. The theme, however, is autobiographical. 

Out of darkness I found
Through struggles unwound
On a long path to joy
And no effort to be coy
Love found me all alone
Made this skeptic atone
Pulled me in, held me close
The one I lovèd most
Lovèd me without end
My heartache he did mend
