He walked me to the edge of the world –
he said he wanted to show me the light.
But all I saw was black…
An all-encompassing void.
“Just wait,” he said…
“It’s coming. Be patient.”
Shuffling my feet, I sighed….
all I do is wait for the light.
“I promise. I’m going to show you the light.”
And just like that a glorious streak went across the dark–
illuminating all in its path.
Shimmering iridescence that blinded my eyes.
“See, I told you, ” he whispered.
“It’s all there. You just have to open your eyes and look.”
