The Light In Her Eyes

I’m scared of the dark,
yet here I sit alone.
There’s no need to find me.
Content in this place,
though hard as I try,
I can’t stop looking behind me.

Why is it right here
that I find myself,
over and over again?
As the hours pass by,
the conclusion remains:
it’s all beginning to end.

To think of the worst
will only keep me here,
and answers are what I seek.
So I take a look around
and come across a mirror.
Into my future I peek.

There in my eyes
is a reflection of light.
It was shining all along.
I see wonderful things
and smiling faces,
and hear this beautiful song.

I walk away singing,
knowing not to forget
that girl that lives in the mirror.
The light in her eyes
shines much too bright.
The answers couldn’t be clearer.

That something which was missing
has since been found.
I fear the shadows no more.
So I’ll stay in the dark
and I’ll sit here alone,
while I laugh at the me I was before.
