The Light

From the shadows I had come
And in sadness did I ride
Came to see the garish sun
And watch the turning of the tide

Let there be Light” – and Light there was
I saw the sky in fancy colours dressed
And for a moment my own soul was blessed
(In a moment all the world seemed right)
For my true eyes were beside
To bear witness of the Light

But the moment’s gone – so is the Light
Back in shadows will I hide
And in sadness will I ride
For I had won and lost my Light.
