I’m accumulating years in a secret place…
one year for every tear,
one day for words unsaid,
one written line to mark each time
that passion existed in my mind—and hid.
There’s no time like now for living.
Open doors and windows and allow the sun within.
And when darkness flairs and others despair
let your light brighten the night.
Our light is for all to share.
