The Light Of My World…

The Light Of My World…


By Gloria Faye Brown Bates/aka Granny Gee


This morning in the dark I saw a shadow


Of our home underneath the night light


I stood there and watched it… begin to disappear


As the sky grew brighter


I saw the light touch the shadow


Little by little … to make it go away


I stood there silently


Tilted my head to the side


I was awed to see a shadow turn into light


The shadow was gone, there no more


My eyes searched for any traces


The light was there in its place


When I’m sad, worried


I notice that I do things like this


I notice things I usually don’t


My eyes will find things I don’t really think about


To focus on, to make ‘me’ stay here


Watching as I think about what to do next


That shadow has gone away


The light, the light is the key


It chases shadows away whenever I’m in the dark


I know darkness well


My life has been touched many times


By darkness that tried to trap me on that road


So, that I’d never come back to the light


Add all my energy to make it darker, take my soul


But… it never counted on Skip, our Pups being there


As a beacon (thank you, Colleen), as a beacon shining


On that road, guiding me toward the light


Lighting that path up so, I could see


Chasing those shadows away, making my path clear


I came out of that darkness in time


I looked for the light, followed it


To make it here in today


I still see shadows such as the one I watched this morning


The light chased it away, I watched it go


It made me think of my light


Skip and our Pups who light up my world


Who chase shadows away, make me feel safe, not afraid


Go away shadows, go away


Please don’t come back to make me afraid


If you do… the light of my world… will chase you away

Note:  I thought of two of my blogging friends as I wrote this… I associate ‘beacon’ with Colleen who told me that Skip and the Pups are my beacon.  I thought of Subhan who writes about the light.  I’m honored to have them as my friends.  :)))
