Come Into the Light

June 10, 2011
Do you have feeling?
Can you feel when it's raining?
Do you know coldness?
Can you feel when tears fall?

Do you ever wonder
How life can get so grey?
Can you taste the bitterness
When it all falls away?

Do you have emptiness?
Can you feel the storm?
Do you know crying?
Can you feel when it's all gone?

Do you ever think about
The times when you weren't weary?
Can you hear the echoing
When you used to see clearly?

Do you know happiness?
When did you last feel blessed?
Can you taste sorrow?
Ashes of yesterday's tomorrow

Do you ever wonder
Why you live like this?
Do you ever care to change
Or do you like bitterness?

Here in tomorrow
Nothing's gonna change
Unless you are willing
To let go of the yesterday

Do you ever want to
Find a new life?
Can you find yourself
Ready to stand upright

Now it's another day
And the rain is falling
Washing all the echoes away
They won't be calling

Are you happy now?
Can you find a life?
Do you know where you're going?
Are you in the light?

Come into the light

God?  I know that "you are a holy people, a royal priesthood, a people belonging to God, that you may declare the praises of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful LIGHT."  I was meaning God's light.
