Light Bearer

She is no goddess,

not even a beauty.

Just a plain old lady,

yet see her face.

How her sweet smile,

enlightens someone’s heart.

He is no scholar,

not even a wise one.

An ordinary man,

yet he listens.

How his kind ears,

saves someone from peril.

They are no angels,

not ethereal beings.

See their feet on the ground,

yet, light bearers-

stars of the lost,

sanctuaries of the sad.

Not a mere mortal,

you are something divine.

Let your light touch their souls,

heed their soft cries,

open your heart.

You are a light bearer.
