The Returning Light.

The Returning Light.

Speak softly to me, in the night,
find the gentlest thing to say,
remind me of the returning light
so I can rise and face the day.

Find the gentlest thing to say,
in the dark hours, hold me tight
so I can rise and face the day,
step from stardust into sunlight.

In the dark hours, hold me tight
so the monsters cannot cling to me,
step from stardust into sunlight,
unburdened, fierce and free.

So the monsters cannot cling to me...
Remind me of the returning light;
unburdened, fierce and free -
Speak softly to me, in the night.
