A little white light

did once shine brightly

amongst the edge of the forest

just beneath the clouds

no longer guiding

glowing dim down to nil

drowned out the sights of the moon

yet emphasized the sounds of the earth

the dampness in the dark

smothered the light

bringing life

to all the creatures in the night

water flowing gently 

over dirt and stone

afraid to wander 

through the shadows 

not knowing what is lurking 

behind every turn

if I were to walk all alone
