A Ray of Hope
Tonight I left the light on.
I cannot stand the dark.
I need to see a flicker,
even a tiny spark.
A ray of hope that stays with me
in the shadows on my wall.
For all that's been with me in the day
has left no hope at all.
No phone to answer,
No words to hear,
No lyrical sounds
within my ear.
So I shall content myself this night
and soothe my heart from ache.
And you, I know will sleep soundly
as the night time hours break.
When the morning dawns and night is gone
and still my light I see,
my time is here to turn it off
and nod off sleepily.
