Quest for the Light


I reach through the shadows and I feel your hand,
Your touch is the strength that guides me.
My eyes see the light ahead,
But even in the darkness, I know it is you.

This light burns as the sun in the heavens,
A heat sure to burn the unwary traveler.
It is this light that has led many hearts home.
Extinguish not this bright, eternal flame!

Do not hide or attempt to shield this light.
Humanity deserves to view its awesome veracity.
Emissary to man's delight in the rhythm of reality,
Evidence of the omnipotence beyond.

Weigh not its function at the present,
But revel in its newly formed determination.
Gather thy wits about the warmth,
And proceed within the beam.
The key is yours to grasp.
Only you can find it there!
