The Lights

Posted by Mary D'Alba on Sunday, May 30, 2010 Under: Poetry

Our light shines so bright
for the time we have here
on this beautiful green earth.
We shine this light for
and on others that we meet.
Whether or not we realize it,
our light adds to others
and they shine stronger
as our light does the same.
Even if it is times of trouble,
the light insists on being seen
so our light won't fade,
it insists on glowing even more.
So instead of thinking
that our light is dying,
it actually gains clarity,
strength and a higher view
then we could have imagined.
No one can take our light,
yes, it may flicker,
it may struggle to fight the wind,
but it never goes out.
Even after "death",
our light continues to burn
in all who we have touched.
So before you think
that you don't make an impact,
think about how many lights
you've seen and contributed to
each and every day.
Your light, their light,
our light, shines on
because of you.
