Still Standing Tall
The Light Within You
Fret not this day but keep in your mind,
There is a light burning in your heart.
A flame which burns there forever unseen,
Lighting your path through the darkness.
For when a promise is given to you,
It never fades away as a lost memory.
The world to us sometimes seems so dark,
And men of good will wander forth lost.
It is in the depths of this darkness,
I can seek out my glimmer of light.
Yet sometimes I look to the world,
Where lights twinkle so invitingly.
But then the path grows cold and lonely,
For the twinkling lights are temporary.
But we are born to this earth,
And shall one day return to soil.
We are only visitors and homeless,
Is there a place which we seek.
So I gather my strength from the light,
Just as the promise filled so long ago.
So fear not the world’s darkness,
You have within you the brilliance of light.
