The Light

The Light

The light was dim at first
just a flicker in the heart

And so, on a sunny day,
the path was dark
and we wandered around aimlessly

Then, before us, an exquisite flash
and we were shown
how all things might shine
when allowed
when seen as possible

See how your heart-spark-light
stoked by love
will burn bright

And the path, too, will shine.
