in the world of optical illusions
I must learn to see like the blind
casting off these scarred
and atrophied eyes
knowing by what I know
when sometimes my knowing
is gone
because I am not even here
but out there searching for you
wherever you have gone
and then come the shadows
to play tricks with my fire
so when I return
I must remember 
that it is there and waiting
if I can cast the shadows out
in these times when I must
keep these fires burning
and clear
so you will also remember
their truth
because all that love can be
is love
and only the shadows are lies
but never the light
never the light 
I have eternally held
in my heart
for you
