Orb Of Light


You came to me in dark of night
And gave to me an orb of light
I watched it glow in the palm of my hand
Till it filtered through my fingers like sand
I mourned its loss, where was the glow
That once had comforted and warmed me so
I’m back in darkness, the wind blows fierce
A veil of black that nothing can pierce
I wish I had never known the touch
Of that orb of light that I loved so much
I wish I had never been able to see
How much happiness it gave to me
For endless night now blots the day
And though it’s always been this way
I would never have known that in the night
There once existed an orb of light
