The Light (poem)

Where is it now the light you said you saw

So many dreary worn out years ago

When rivers still removed the bitter snow

And allowed a frozen heart to thaw

-

Where is it now with its sweet afterglow

That light of yours which covered every flaw

And still made time to fill your life with awe

With simple things like words I love you so

-

It’s time to put away our childish dreams

Such fantasies don’t pay the bills you see

This mirror here will sing what life’s about

-

And as I stared through long forgotten streams

I saw its empty shadow stare at me

She searches for this light that I put out
