The Guide

Night comes quietly
surrounding me in darkness
but for a tiny flicker of light
just beyond my grasp.
My light.
My hope.
My inspiration.
My muse.
Sent to guide me
she leads me to the place
I need to be unknowingly
illuminating paths
long since lost to time.
Doors thought closed for eternity
now open effortlessly
when touched by the softness
of her light.
My heart
once locked behind those doors
blooms with gratefulness
for what it now feels.
Shadows creep in
to remind me of the light’s brevity
and of my life desires
that never shall be.
My light.
My hope.
My inspiration.
My love.
