The Light

A tunnel
Long dark
Narrow
Pitch black
I am
disoriented

I forget
where I'm going
I forget
why I'm here

Which way
is forward
Which way
is backward
I run into walls
groping blindly

Every so often
the touch of a hand
a soft word
even a slow breath
remind me I'm not alone

We all stumble
wander
ramble blindly
in the darkness

But still
we are together
We fall and
get back up
But where
are we going

But suddenly
a shout
I am startled
The shout is
happy
And then I see it
A pinprick of light
It appears beside me
I am going
the wrong way

I right myself
and move forward
shouting singing
groping for a hand to grasp
a person to embrace

Now we see the light
and we will make it
No matter how far
or how long it takes

We are together
and we know where
we are going
And we will get there
