Keep The Light On

Darkness looms for miles

Been down this road for awhile

Walking with a single phone flashlight

All that surrounds belongs to the night

No light to guide my way

Feeling lonely, walking astray

No place to rest or take a break

All this darkness makes my heart ache

With my one small light, it gives me hope

And in front of me I see a rope

I start to climb higher and higher

And, I, an ordinary writer

See more light, big and bright

Hope defeating the darkness of the night

So for all you on your own dark roads

Keep the light on, hope will help you bear the load

Never give up or give in

Hope will be your guide through thick and thin
