Always the Morning Returns

Writer's Digest PAD Challenge, day 20
For today’s prompt, take the phrase “Always (blank),” replace the blank with a new word or phrase, make the new phrase the title of your poem, and then, write your poem.

Always, in spite of its darkest of dark
Or loneliest lonely as night fills each space
Always, from outer regions morning comes
An ether epiphany of love’s kind grace

Always, in spite of our fumbling foray
As ‘neath the scepter of duty we grope
Always the dawn washes midnight away
Awesome allotment of mercy and hope

Always, in spite of our pitiful proof
That we are nothing but man, prone to sin  
Always the darkness is drawn from night’s roof
Always the morning returns once again
