The Poet: Lamp Of Hope

When the dark comes,
you will shatter my night,
unleash your present with
envelope of light like twilight.

Lamp of hope, light me the way,
lead me through the dark, hark! me.

I am lost in thoughts, free me from the
freezing cold, my feet are stuck and weak,
it glitters but mirage,
I am in cage for age.

I am overwhelm with cough in my couch,
where I catch the cold,
I can’t recall.

My eyes are wink,
the lamp is wick.
it sparrows around in every corner of the dark.

I see the light of the day,
through the glass of the lamp, mark my word,
there is no light of hope like the path of God.
