Your Light Within

In my early morning nook, while writing my next post on transitions, I looked out and saw this reflection:  a light within my tree.  I found this poem.  The images and the poem say it all.

Poem by William Lindenmuth

There’s a light that burns within you
that illuminates your soul
They say its always been there
Steady bright and in control

It’s the guiding spirit that drives you
As you live your life each day
Shining a light on the darkest paths
As you walk along the way

It’s the light outside the shadows
A lonely life can cast
But if you look to feel it
The darkness will not last

That illuminates your face
a gentle warmth that surrounds you
When your heart is in that place
The brightness of the spirit
And all the love you share
Embracing it with a passion
Nurturing it with care
Within the light is life’s meaning
Things close to the heart believed
A summation of your life time
And all things you perceived
Live the life within you
Let the light shine through
Sharing it with others
embraced by love so true
the light that burns within you
the warmth of life’s desire
let it shine on brightly
true keeper of the fire
