Leave The Light On In The Heart

I see you open your eyes
blinded, the light never brings them sight
faded in the shadows
ignoring all the possibilities
the truth reveals itself
time awakens the soul.

Truths that are never told
the imagination creating the stories
the lies they behold
bringing someone down
somehow they have to leave
a frown lingering around.

Believe in the moment
create love in words
the blessing comes
some how spoken words
never will tell you the truth
actions in silence
reveal who really is the fool.

Why be afraid of beliefs that
will fall down tearful waterfalls.
No regrets starve the human spirit
guilt and shame never need an applause
watch all the darkness fall
its pretty plain the victory comes
when you've reached inner peace.

Forgive those that never come
Forgive the rumors they call
accusations make them blind
God will always bring them down
there are no excuses to recall
forbidden to thrive
they say, you never deserve love
treated like an animal
persecution is never forgiving
Angels always walk by your side
when they come around
walking in joy without a tear in your eye
it's a beautiful life when you
learn to focus with God's love
in your sight.

You never need to move through
the motions
or pretend as you face the world
there is no reason to hide
or live behind a facade
its your birth right to shine
shine bright in the silver glittering night.

No one can bring you down
never be persuaded by the unhappiness
hang on to the joy
love is the most precious gift
love is worth more than all the gold
In your heart always leave
the light on.
