My Light

My Light


Here once beat the heart

Of a sympathetic soul

No closer to the truth

Just further from his goal


No nearer to the light

This never-ending fight

A single candle

In the coldest darkest night


I will not bend or break

Even though you take

A little bit more each day

My light wonít fade away


This eternal torment

Cannot last

Iíll find someone true, to me

And place you in my past, forever

As Melanie said, it's difficult to move on. But like anything else, with practice we get there. Well done John. jp

If only we could live our live's, as easily as we write our words.
Though in our best interest, forgetting and moving on can be so

This is beautifully written.

What a painful poem to read.. but such is life.!!!. We just never know when it will all change? Now its best to move on and let that cloak of darkness fall and the dawning of a new day waits for you..hugs ~ Scarlett
