Light the Night

January 19, 2010
By , Shelbyville, KY
A young woman’s crying,
Weeping in the night;
Doesn’t have an answer,
Nothing seems right.

Her husband is so far away
Where once he was so near;
This empty house, his empty words –
This hurt, this pain, this fear.

A young boy is crying,
Weeping in the night;
Doesn’t want an answer,
Ending this fight.

He never had a friend to love,
Or care or hear. No hope.
His empty life, his empty heart –
These cuts, these tears, this rope.

And now we sit watching,
Listen in the night.
We have an answer,
We have a Light.

We may just be the ones to make
A difference in a life.
A kinder tongue, a simple hug,
This heart, this mind, this love.
