Analysis of A Walk in the Light

A Walk in the Light

To walk in the light is to find ones way
and to walk in the dark is to stumble
and fall and loose ones direction

We shall walk together hand in hand
and share in the light
as we have left the darkness behind.

The riches of the heart have made me a wealthy man
that only I can find.

Join in my heart as we shall join together
and share in the riches that were meant to be.

As I was once blind because my mind could not see.

Now that my mind is clear after i nave found you
my vision is clear as our life together gets near.

Believe in our love as I believe we are loved
and we shall have no fear.

Norman Wilson

IntroductionForgotten are the times the tick of a clock once chimed sobering sounds that caressed my hearts nightly dreams. As I awaken to the touch of light that burns upon a candles wick flickering my words for all to see. This drives my thoughts through the darkest of nights of loneliness that renders my quill upon parchment with ink that dances to minds and souls.Now I hear the screeching of my heart when the blue horizon covers the orb of emptiness.Within the shelter of my mind with little, purpose other than my words that keep me sane. These are my new poems I have written in the quiet of my night, forever wished away in a writer’s pain. As I strive to write that perfect poem that, my soul desperately seeks. Then and only then can my words rest upon a sleep. more…
