Night Light


I’ve been through some storms of life

I’ll be through a lot more pain and strife

There will be times when I am all but broken

I do my best in spite of the rain

Trying to keep temper and action restrained

I’m often lost in the dark and there’s no finding my path alone

I don’t know what lies ahead

Uncertain futures fill me with dread

It’s all my power not to give up in despair

But I’ve got you brightening the room

A brilliant flash amidst the monsoon

You bring a light to the night of my troubles

I’ll admit I’m scared to face the storm

You give me courage to replace my scorn

You use laughter and love to fight away the terror

With you I’m better than my best

Thanks to you I will withstand the test

I won’t surrender to oppressive tyranny

I love you even more than you can know

My heart like gold for you warmly glows

I’ll need you more as I fight the uphill battles

Don’t forget to keep me near

Don’t guilt yourself for a single tear

With you I know together we’ll stand victorious

About The Lost Poet

I write because I find inspiration. It is my hope that through my writing some connections may be felt. Everything I write comes from my experiences with life, and with the people that I love. I try to remember to see myself in everyone, and everyone in myself.
