Guiding light

Through those times of madness
When I've no more energy to fight
When I've that feeling of emptiness
You bring me up to the hieist height

When ever I'm drowning in loneliness
And every day is just black and white                                                                                                   
When ever I'm in time's of sadness
You make every day shine so bright

But you always belie din happiness
Every one feeing happy, feeling all right
Was that perhaps your thoughtfulness
A visionary who always had great insight

But you always had such an awareness
The memory of you here day and night
Like when ever I'm in time's of darkness
And I can't see, you are my guiding light







I dont know where I was going with this write the words guiding light
Took from a poem I wrote called someone back in 2004
This was also inspierd by an old song we we sang at school

Trying to keep pattern as did with others such as WONDERER ,KALIDOSCOPE,SORROW,ECT

this poem guiding light is a tribute to a friend I lost tragicly back in september 1993
someone like no other she was GUIDING LIGHT iM REFERING TO HER SPIRIT THAT LVES ON 
AND GETS ME THROUGH THE DAY ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,written by myself DAVID SCOTT JUNE JULY 2012

note did tweek a little switching words verses round but still same
just thought in better context,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

    This is a sweet with lots of sensitivity. Such a special poem to express the loss of a friend. 'guiding light' is a great metaphor for remembering someone who had deep affect on your life... :)
