"If There Were No Light!"
What would I do, if the sun and the moon,
Their light, no longer to rise?
Would I dwell in dark places? And dream of their faces?
And wish I could be surprised?
Would I miss the smile of morning sunbeams?
The evening kiss of a full moon's glow?
Would I mourn the loss, of trials each day?
With no light in the darkness to show?
Would I be glad? To see no future?
No enlightenment, to guide my way?
Would I accept the good, and the bad as it comes?
Without inspiration, from hope's calming rays?
With full purpose of heart! I will embrace the light!
Despite approaching hardships, that will be!
Let the sunlight rise! And moonlight shine!
For eternal truths, and understanding, given me!
