Keeping Hope

I see a light in the dark
Truly positive light
Among great despair
This is hope, it takes its form
Of a star in a broken world
My heart skips its rhythm
When the light flickers
I urge it to stay lit
It kisses my spirit
And I find myself lost for words
Was I ever wrong for losing it?
This beauty, this light
This wonderful spirit
That shone so brightly
In the perilous night
