The Light

 I am the peace you feel in your soft bed in the evening

and the warmth of the room that loftily surrounds you.


I am the food you eat when you feel yourself rumble

and the bulbs that come on when you turn on the tube.


I am the blinds that keep you from the horrors of today

and the terrifying scope of the world of tomorrow.


I am the safety you feel from the dangers outside

and the warmth that prevents you from sorrow.


I am the danger, the fighter unseen

and the silence when there’s hidden plight.


Yes, I am the darkness, the strength, and the shadows,

and you, in return, are the light.
