This Light - Poem by Robert Rumery

I saw into your mind,
into your world of hate and darkness,
I told you to take my hand,
and that everything would be alright,
but I see you laying in that bed,
And I see the hatred in your eyes,
the hatred that you have for your life,
the hatred that you have for yourself,

The darkness has taken over your soul,
its taken over your body,
and you don't understand why,
why you feel this way,
why it must be for all time,
And that it’s never going to end,

You called me your savior,
But I don't feel like I'm saving you anymore,
But I'm more of a torment,
A Desire that you can't have,
I was supposed to be your light in The Darkness,
but I feel like I've abandoned you somehow,

But theirs a light inside of us both,
A Light that shines in our hours of darkness,
A Light that wants to shine inside of you,

Can't you feel me by your side,
I'm holding your hand,
urging you to go on with your life,
Urging you just to press on just a little bit longer,

So many words that should have been said,
so many unsaid things,
that I should of said to you,
Even thou I'm not there physically,
You know that I'm thinking of you,
and you that I love you,

Chorus: You know,
There is a little light inside of my soul,
that Burns for you,
There’s A Little Light Inside Of My Soul,
That Burns For You,
There’s A Little Light Inside Of My Soul,
That Burns For You,

I know the pain inside of you is tearing you apart,
and it’s tearing me too,
Knowing how alone That You Feel,
How this evil addiction you have is hurting you,
And your family,

It’s So Hard to believe in Salvation,
When you’re stuck in the darkness,
It’s so Hard to Feel Loved,
When You Feel So Unloved and Hated,

You know,
There is a little light inside of my soul,
that Burns for you,
There’s A Little Light Inside Of My Soul,
That Burns For You,
There’s A Little Light Inside Of My Soul,
That Burns For You,

I've seen the pain that you’re going through,
first hand,
a long time ago my Life wasn't my best friend,
and the world was My Bitter-enemy,
I felt so displaced, out of place,
I thought I Couldn't live life normally,

I went through hell,
with my evil addiction,
metal against my flesh,
just wanting to bleed,
At moments Just Wanting To Die,

But I stayed strong,
And had a small hope inside of me,
That someday that It Would Be Okay,
that Someday that I'll Be Okay,

chorus: You know,
There is a little light inside of my soul,
that Burns for you,
There’s A Little Light Inside Of My Soul,
That Burns For You,
There’s A Little Light Inside Of My Soul,
That Burns For You,

Know I sit beside of your bed,
and I look into your eyes,
And I see myself in you,
I see The Pain I went through,
And I Don't Want That For You,

So that’s why I'm here with you,
Telling you that Everything’s Going To Be Okay,
Because Someday You'll Be Free,
Because I See That Little Light Inside Of Your Soul,
And It Burns So Bright,

Chorus: Repeats..
