Be That Light
There is a space in our hearts
where a soft light glows.
Its flame glows even when darkness surrounds us,
even when anger sweeps us up like a hurricane.
There is light in our hearts.
even when the despair threatens to overtake us.
There is a glimmer,
despite war and bitter disappointments that cause us to spiral
There is light still.
There must be.
In the cold,
when the winter of the world feels that it will last forever
hold onto that inner light that softly glows in you.
Coax the light out from the corners of your heart.
fuel it until it roars;
share from the flame which does not rest.
Light the way for someone whose light burns dim.
Shepherd that light however you know how;
to your neighbors, to the lost, the needy
to those who seek light.
Look and you will find them.
Spread your light with all your might,
light is power and power is light.
May your lite shine bright.
A candle of God is the soul of man.
