I held a candle in the night to try and light my way, obscuring fears of darkness as I lived from day to day. I cupped my hand around the flame deflecting bits of light who's energy diminished fading quickly out of sight. Then someone held a torch so high that light encompassed me and though I walked alone my soul rejoiced the company. I hold a candle in the night, so dim it's flame does glow. But there's a torch of caring leading everywhere I go.
Yesterday is history, tomorrow just a mystery. And if today is good to me, it will beat the heck out of day before yesterday!
Good to see you back and yes, there is something incredibly comforting about watching flames flickering...I read the following somewhere and it always stayed with me....it may not be verbatim but close I think...
"Never be afraid of shadows because it means a light is shining on you"
The grape passes through the press to yield wine. Your life must pass through the press of passion and pain to yield the wine of wisdom..
