Light - Poem by Elizabeth Stone

Around me there was only darkness,
I was surrounded by eternal night.
Somehow you destroyed the emptiness,
and with you came my beloved light.

And there was music and there were dreams,
there was laughter filled with love,
no place for darkness, loneliness or tears,
the light of life was shining from above.

When you went, I was left hollow,
and taunting me, came back the eternal night.
But now the emptiness filled with sorrow,
with your absence - „poof“ - went my beloved light.
