A Light in the Darkness.
No matter where you roam
Or how far you are from home
No matter how far apart we have grown
May you never feel all alone.
Though many years have passed us by
And you have not forgotten the reason why
Nor forgiven me for words that made you cry
Or the pain that sometimes makes you sigh.
I will be there, a shoulder to cry on
When your fair weather friends have all gone
And left you to face your troubles on your own
I will be here, to pick up the phone.
I will light a candle and place it on the windowsill
A twinkling star to comfort you, if you’re feeling ill
A little spark of hope to keep you safe and sound
And help to keep your feet on safe and solid ground
A strong wind to steer you safely and fill your sails
To guard you from the storms and the gathering gales
To shield you from your fears and frightening tales
A light in the darkness when all hope fails.
