Precious Light

Oh precious light
Why are you so dark?
your brothers and sisters
are all shining bright
Are you dark because you're lonely?
Are you lonely because you're dark?
Please tell me why dear light
you're not shining true.
Did someone neglect you
or fail to protect you
or do you not wish to shine
like your brethren so bright?
In quiet darkness you shall live
in the shadows but set apart.
Oh tell me why dear light
the question lingers still
the world wants you to open up
and let your beauty come from within
But not I dear light
I see the truth just yet
We are kin you and I
alike in every way
We will shine another day
when the other lights are dim
We will shine the brightest
on that distant day
But for now we rest
and wait
to shine bright some day
