The Light - Poem by robert john bayoneta

I've seen so many lights under this sun so bright,
But all was a light that shine overnight.
Some are in the dark and some are in the hills,
Some are in its peak and some are in the fields.

A light from the gem and a light from the gold,
The light of the fame and the light of the world.
But all is a light that blind the eyes of men,
And all is a light that cause the void within.

But there is one Light that shine from above,
The only Light that gives life and the true source of love.
In Him there's nothing more for He is all,
The lover of my soul that makes me whole.

In times of turbulence He is my sudden calm,
In seasons of cold winds He my sure warm.
Though in this life I am empty and very weak,
But only through His word He lift my spirit.


Poet's Notes about The Poem

As i travel riding in a jeep, i saw many lights coming from different establishments, billboards, hotels, restaurant etc. and i say to myself with all that structure i can't see any lasting value so i make a poem about it and compare the lights to the Only LIGHT which is GOD where eternity belongs.
