The title, the beginning and ending words were written by me in communication with another writer of words. This was born from that event.

Sometimes I Hold the Light

Sometimes I hold the light
Sometimes the light holds me.

Sometimes I am the lighthouse
a shining beacon of hope
throwing out the lifeline
pulling on the rope

Sometimes I am the wayward ship
tossing in turbulent seas.
Without a captain at the helm,
no one hears my pleas.

Sometimes I am the raging sea
pounding the rocky shore.
Changing the boulders to pebbles
Hear my mighty roar!

Sometimes I am the moon
controlling the ocean's tide
silently, eternally watching
among the stars abide.

Sometimes I am the sun
giving the moon its light.
Sharing myself in darkness
invisible in the night.

Sometimes I hold the light
Sometimes the light holds me.

Deeper than romance a vein lies inside you... A vein of the spirit..
Much like the single precious vein of gold inside a huge rock - it makes that rock so precious to nature and man.
