My Light
Author: Clive B Ringshall


For some 40 years youíve been here close to me,
For all this time you try to stay,
Hard at times for this too, do I know,
You leave but always return so bright,
As clouds float on by, youíre there to guide,
You keep me safe through lifeís winding road,

A pleasure you are,
Taken for granted this I know,
Seen by most but not by all,
To open our hearts youíre there inside,
Youíre there to be heard,
Youíre there to show the way,
If only all would listen,

In times of trouble you stick by my side,
In times of trouble if only I was there,
You never doubt me,
You always trust in what I do,

A light so bright within my soul,
A voice you are so right,
A light who reminds me Iím the one to grow,
With you always with me near,
Iíll forever try my best,

Top of the afternoon to ya Mr. Ringshall!

Ahhhhh.........The intense brightness of the light, that shineth inside your heart and soul, makes you smile doesn't it? This light; which never leaves nor dimmers...It's permanent, reminding you, that'll they'll stick by your side, better than Elmer's crazy glue....LOL! That they'll lead the way, when the path gets dark and foggy.......The light still remains; and that's so lovely, and inspirational! Great emotional poem Clive!!

your poetry always pulls me in,and captures me with my own memories.... keep sharing those fond memories that you hold deep in the chambers of your heart, yet our loved ones have departed..they do remain by our side and fully in our heart...Terrie*
