Neither Light Nor Dark But You

In the sudden glow of fortune
the half light of discontent
the darkened shades of mourning
and starlight of lone laments
in the burning forgotten embers
of loving words now spent
and the blazing flames of glory
when we were what we present
in the flickering glow of quiet times
where silence gave us life
and the burning sear of flaming flesh
where redemption drowned in strife
in minor sparks
of minor words
that made each day alive
and the dying blaze
of ending days
that concluded our bright life
in all these lights and shadows long
I knew what I would see
your loving hand
reached out to me
my endless certainty
