Turn on your light

Turn On Your Light.

Turn on your light

Turn on your light
Light the velvet softness of your night
You might have felt that breath of sweetest power
In that silver moon
That paints the twilight hours
Have you ever felt that mystic pull
That takes you from the smallest flower 
To melt into the all.

I sometimes stand there staring at the sea
As each wave reaches out to destiny
To fade and then to come back
So another wave might form
To be destroyed
Then to be reborn….

Turn on your light
Pass no judgment, who’s to say what’s right?
 No need for this when light is shining bright
Have you felt such magic
Have you felt that pull
It’s something that must happen to each fool
He must learn how to melt into
The silence of the all.

The secrets they be wrote within your soul
Seek them out and let them make you whole
Each flower it must bloom then die
So know your precious I
Must be destroyed
To be reborn…

    i think i can learn a lot from you. i wish i could "melt into the silence of the all." it sounds like it would be very peaceful...

    Thank you so much, ilene. It is easy to get where i am. whenever it occurs to you to do so. Close your eyes and ask yourself what it feels like to be you. Go to John Shermans site. and he will explain it much better than I , I really do appreciate your comments....Peter

    this is really good, Peter. It flows so well and is so mystical and and beautiful. Love the way you took the allusion to the flower and brought it back at the end. You tied it all up very nicely.

    Andrea, I thank you so much for your comments. I cannot really be blamed for my lyrics, most of them just well up from within, And I just let the computer keys do the rest, I really do appreciate your comments...Peter
