You Light Up The Dark

Share This:

When the days are lonely
And the nights dark
When the moods are gray
And shadows mark

When the thoughts frighten
And my spirits are low
I hear your voice
I see you bow

You lift my spirits
You hold me beyond
My pain my fright
My misery’s all gone

I carry you around
Where ever I go
You’re on my mind
My heart and soul

In the strangest places
When bodies around bark
I feel you there
Lighting up the dark
