Slices Of Light

I think of my yesterdays
Remembering specific feelings
Standing in the dark
Wondering if I would see or feel the light

Suddenly, I feel the light before I see it
My insides are bursting with happiness
Everything seems clear
All the questions I had, finally answered

I feel safe standing in the light with you
Nothing is jumbled, it's bright
Brighter than I have ever seen or felt
I'm not afraid

Then the dark is back
Maybe the light was never real
Only in my imagination
I lay curled in my bed

Trying to sleep
The feelings all still three
Never going away
They were real, the light was real

Today I sometimes wish it was a dream
I could dismiss it all
Remembering slices of light
Only remind me I am back in the dark

I cherish my past, I accept my present and I dream for my future
