The Light Which Does Not Fail

- jan-u-wine
There is Light
behind
the Shadow,
you know....
 
Distanc'd,
unyielding,
softly spilled
Light.
 
Light
tempered to fine radiance by trial,
 
stubborn and sure
at its source,
 
unfaltering,
unfailing
 
 
Light held apart,
 
free of Shadow,
 
unsuborned
by
Darkness.
 
Light
born
 
and
 
borne
 
from that very
Shadow
 
that sought
to end it.
 
I see it,
 
unbroken,
 
running with
silent ease,
 
endless grace.
 
 
Even at the very end
of despair,
 
it is there,
 
unwavering,
 
shining like unsullied Earendil,
glancing bright
(a joy amidst my sorrow)
like the Sun upon a vast
Sea.
 
You
are the bearer
of the Light.
