keeper of the lightwhat if you were asked to be
a keeper of the light?
to hold the light in the darkness,
to remember and believe in
and stand up for and talk about
and spread that very light?
to understand the connection between love and light
and to keep your eyes focused there
even when your head is swimming with fear?
to agree to get up again and again and again
after every crushing weight that the world throws on you?
what if you were asked to love over and over and over?
to shine your light everywhere you could?
maybe it's time you listened for the question.
maybe it's time you listened for your answer.
