POEM: Look For The Light

Out in the darkness, it’s easy to feel alone. 
When the sun has gone, and its warmth is cold 
look for the light.

Although hidden, it’s always there. 
So never give up
It will lead you out of there.
The smallest flicker, the mutest star
The light is out there, no matter how far.
Reach for the light

For Russell
