I Hold My Candle - Poem by Kathup Tsering

Silent foreboding behind prison's door
shadows of the willow scatter across your pillow
rivers of tears do not wash away the darkness
I hold my candle to shine Light on your soul

City's haze blankets your high plateau
foggy mind allows clouded thought
love seems to have forsaken you
I hold my candle to shine light on your soul

Thieves lurk about your vessel at night
invisible pain ravages your heart
suffocating breath vessel of a depleted spirit
I hold my candle to shine light on your soul
