Not Stealing, But Being Inspired By Dylan Thomas

               A lovely sunset on my trip out to Two Hills, Alberta to visit a friend.

 

Let the Light Guide and Strengthen You

 

I say softly now you can’t rely on emotions

Or greed or pity or any deadly sin

But you can find strength as vast and deep as the oceans

When you let your spirit grow strong from within

 

The spirit that guides me through the darkness

Is the hope that keeps me warm cold winter nights

Never hope to face the world when you are lonesome

Because each soul on Earth gives us strength in different ways

 

I thought the best thing for me was hiding

To live far away from angry, judgemental eyes

But the spirit that guides me through the darkness

Helped me to age like wine, grow old and wise

 

Just like an energy that surrounds us all and binds us

The spirit kept me going in the here and now

And as I opened up and allowed others to love me

I found the courage to use the grindstone and the plow

 

The spirit that guides me through the darkness

Kept me going, kept me fighting for better days

I cared no more that some may have disliked me

By that spirit’s power my broken soul was saved

 

And then I found the perfect partner

Someone to care for all the rest of my living days

And at once I gave myself to her loving heart

Then my whole life got so much better in so many ways
