Just a Little Glimpse of Light
Groping in the cold and the seemingly unending darkness that encompasses this particular night of my soul; in the cold night when I was lost for some confusing reasons;
My heart longed for the Light, just a glimpse of light to guide me home;
To the home where merry hearts and abundance in everything good thrive;
Where Love and praises to the beauty of this Universe and its Creator warms every soul;
My limbs are numbed from the cold;
My heart is painfully pounding for the fear of the dark;
Such darkness where a monster might appear to devour me to pieces;
In this darkness where no one exactly knows what evil might happen?
Who can rescue me from this horrible situation and condition?
I cannot even see everything is just darkness and I don’t know where I am; not a step would my numbed and painful legs do;
Where is home? Where are my parents who care for me?
Do they remember me? Do they know that I am lost? If so are they going to look for me and eventually find me?
It seems like eternity in this condition;
I had been crying quietly, afraid to even scream, otherwise the evil ones might be the first to hear me;
I long for home;
Just thinking of the comforts in my home gave me some strength;
I just need some glimpse of light now;
I can see how important the light is now that I am lost in this darkness;
Then suddenly a little light is moving…just a dot of light is wonderful to follow in a darkness like this;
As I crawled to follow the light, I realized that it grows bigger and it continued to move as if guiding me;
As the light increased its brightness, I started to see the grasses that surrounded me and I remember where this place was;
I knew where I was and I knew what direction I should be going;
This knowledge alone was enough to provide me strength to carry on; if it was just to crawl towards the comforts of my home.
