SHINING

I am Darkness, I am shadow,
I am an uncried tear.
She is brightness, she is the glow -
Of sunshine ever near.

I am sadness, melancholy,
I am the voice of rain.
She is gladness, she is folly,
The recompense of pain.

I am torture, I am shame,
I am the touch of sorrow.
She is pleasure. Passion untame,
She is hope for tomorrow.

I am alone, and in my fear -
I am as cold as ice.
She is comfort, warm and dear,
A glimpse of paradise.

And yet somehow our souls connect -
In the lucidity of dream.
Where a magic only her eyes reflect -
Has made the Darkness gleam.

Lovely! I have a question....how is there darkness without light? If there is no light, no one would know there is darkness as there would be nothing to compare with it.. right?

Awesome lines, Michael...whatever else this liason has certainly given you a wealth of heartsongs!
