Light and lite

Updated on March 15, 2012

Light of the world shine on me

Sunrise in the Rio Grande Valley,Texas
Sunrise in the Rio Grande Valley,Texas
Some say they have seen the light
Some say they have seen the light

Lite is not light

Light some say is lite

Lite is not light

But some things lite

Can be light

And some things light

Can also be lite

Light can be white

So too,

Something lite

Can also be white

Light can be bright

Light is needed at night

Night brings sleep

Sleep should not be lite

Sleep should be deep

No light should seep

Shades pulled tight

So there is no light

Morning breaks,

Now there is sun light

All things are right

Breakfast is lite

We welcome the light

Kites are lite
Kites are lite

Music by England Dan & John Ford Coley

I have seen the light

Pants are way too tight

Lunch too, must be lite

Must continue to diet

Oh thank God,

I have seen the light

Grabbed the paper,

The news was lite

Weather seems just right

The outlook today seems bright

Light is so good, so misunderstood

Take the light, lite

Light is never dark but can be stark

Just don’t let it get too bright

Or your complexion could be a sight

Epileptics should never lose sight

And stare directly at any light

Else their mind becomes lite

Many have said they were blinded

By the light;

Their mind not right, they lose sight

Too much light and people get lite

Too little light and people become quiet

Light is good for flying a kite

But the kite must be lite

Never white and never bright

Light is always a welcome sight

And when things are Lite,

That too, always seems right.

      Thank you for the read and the comment teaches12345. Yes indeed I am so glad you and several others get it even if it was done from a semi-humorous perspective. It was enjoyable and fun to do. God's blessings on you as well. Lee

      You have done some wonderful play on the words Light and Lite. Great poetic justice to truth of "Light". There is a light that shines eternally within us and there no darkness dwells. Blessings!
