The Light

Tags: lost, found,

She built the walls high
Encased herself within 
No one was getting though
No way, No how 

She doesn’t know how 
Or even why 
But he found the smallest crack 
To let the light inside 

A beacon of light
Which softly shone 
A light so bright 
In her darkness alone

The light made her wonder
Yet still cower in fear 
The soft ample glow 
Made a tear appear 

“What do you want?”
“Why are you here?”
He reached out his hand 
“I just want to be near.”

She’s bruised and broken
Not enough pieces remained
How could she show him 
There was nothing to gain 

Her wounded soul rattled
From its dark hiding place 
Lifting her eyes to the battle
That gently stared at her face  

“I’ll go if you want.”
He said soft and sweet
“I’ll stay if you need.”
As he rose to his feet

Her heart began to glow
In the soft beam of light 
It pierced through to her soul
She didn’t want to fight 

She reached for his hand 
With the strength that she had
Could her darkened little land 
Become whole again 

With a soft little whisper
From deep in her soul
She simply whimpered to him
“Please don’t go.”
