The Light Giver
(29 September 1970 / South Africa)

The Light Giver

I was enthralled with her beauty
the way she moved in the night
covered by the cloak of darkness
but within her carrying the light

and whomever she touched
and wherever she went
she gave of her light
for every tear that was spent

I yearned for her to reach me
to stand in the circle of light
Having had my share of pain and hurt
I’ve certainly earned the right

The darkness came towards me
wrapped around the Lady of Light
but she smiled and moved right past me
leaving me standing in the centre of night
