Light (freeverse)

In the dismal dark 
there is a light

it burns
a bright fire 

emits an ethereal warmth 

i find solace within it 
it conveys to me a respite 

a respite of you 

without you i was lost
in the darkness

now i found you 

i hope i don't put you out
i hope i can foster light within you too 

but i've been in the dark so long
i don't know if i can

i will try

if it burns me to a crisp

i will try
