The Light (poem)

Updated on February 13, 2016

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
