Light and Warmth


Sitting alone

In a cold dark room

Is pain


The brain shrinks

And becomes small

Where to go where to go?


Light shoots forth a single ray

Down into the living room

I can’t breathe I can’t breathe


Curtains draw in display

Of the night of day

Open the curtains

And let the light stream in

It’s warm


And the body tingles

The cold ember heats a little

Just a little


Spread the arms and feel the warmth

Caress the body tenderly

A new breath lights the world away

From this once cold dark room
