Light me a lamp, dear one! not just when the nights are dark but even on the brightest of days sometimes the sun blinded by its own luminescence needs light to be able to shine light
Light me a lamp, dear one! when one by one each hope is plucked to be bruised like petals by the hands of childish fate soothing light is the salve most needed then
Light me a lamp, dear one! the scented secrets shining in the eyes have lost their sheen the incessant flow of tears curtains the luminosity let the flame reflect in them
Light me a lamp, dear one truth cowers in the opacity of lies unsure and unsung, sinking into oblivion all it needs is a glimmer to come into its own once again
Light me a lamp, dear one untold miseries may rain on me life may carry distress in its reticule this tremulous, flickering light holds a promise of tomorrow
Light me a lamp, dear one let me uncoil the mysteries of life wrapped in brittle, yellowing paper the twists and turns of labyrinthine life I will navigate stoically gift me the light of friendship to guide me onwards always.
I hope 2022 is better for all of us. May we all continue to look out for each other, hold each others hand in the blogosphere and have the resilience to ride the rough times. A very Happy New Year. Stay you, stay safe.
