You told me to seek out glowing light,
Shining through the shadow’s eerie prowl.
You told me to search, put up a fight.
But darkness creeping made me scowl,
In a shuttered room, such a sight,
Light entered in my heart soft white.
You told me to seek beyond all glimmer,
In rough housing, a dank stable.
Prayers answered found in the dim.
Move through sadness as I’m able.
Sunlight came in through a window.
Broken pieces fit, once more cabled.
You told me to seek out a source of hope,
It’s difficult when you’re fragmented.
When life makes no sense, and you choke,
Forgetting life is heaven sent.
Words, many vital unspoken,
Fading dream; to him not present.
You told me keep reaching for light,
Guidence from your blessed kind words.
I’m still dealing, an unglued fright,
But I found my resting place, heard —
Such honour, glorious of sights,
A babe at Christmas, light His words.
