To my darling light and husband.
I have seen such beautiful glass.
Clear and new.
And every light
Can shine right through.
But it only shows reflected light
And only shines
when it was clean and bright
And then I saw a broken pane
and smears and stains.
It was pierced by storms
And hands unknown
And sat discarded,
Dusty and Alone.
And then when I was about to pass
I saw a light reach from that glass
And dance and glimmer on the wall
With bursts with colors;
like stars that fall.
I stood in awe, and gazed with delight
At what was truly an awesome sight
I marveled how a broken glass
Can reveal a new beauty,
which had surpassed
The pain and storms that life contained
And showed new light,
for those who remain
I see now that through our breaks and scars,
Our light can shine;
both near and far
And for those that value and love us still
We cast these special lights until
We have only shards of light left to give
Yet such beautiful light…
While we love and live.
