Bright light

Bright light. Warm light. Though I know my sins can scorch and burn.
Please dear Son… Keep me in your light during my darkest turns.
Help me have the courage, to leave my hiding place behind.
Take my hand and lead me out, again into the sunshine.

Warm my soul and warm my face… and give me the courage to hang on.
Bequeath to me a portion… of your light… enough to lead me on.
Do not let me fall and falter further into the darkening night.
For I have seen the sadness there… as it wraps around my heart.

The Dark behind awaits me… The Son can lead me forth.
All around are currents that batter me, and send me back and forth.
Relentless is this life and all the pain it gives… Don’t forget to find me…
Please save me once again...

    I'm so glad this got placed in Brian's contest. He picks very few poems for his list, so he loved this one and I think everyone who sees it will love it.

    Beautiful and very profound. I am reminded of a quote from Bible (pl. pardons me if I have mistaken anywhere) "Seek and you will find, Knock and the doors shall be opened and Ask and it shall be given to you" Light is always needed to save us from darkness. Great write and thank you for your precious words on my Poem. Love and best wishes always...Ravindra
