Show me the light, the light in your eyes.
Darkness fades away with you in my sights.
Time’s standing still, so it comes as a surprise
That eventually we are plunged into a perpetual night.
Show me the strength, at the bottom of your well
And tell me a story that only you can tell.
Recount how you got back up after you fell
As a reminder that you can plot a course out of any hell.
Show me the hope, the hope that guides your way;
The stuff that keeps you buoyant when choppy waters block your way.
Smile as you depart in the boat that you sail
Because anything possible and you know you can’t fail!
Show Me The Light is a short rhyming poem by English poet, Ms Moem.
