Wednesday Riff: This Light

The darkness can never overcome it,
This light, this love stronger than death,
Shines on in the shadows and the emptiness.
More resilient than doubts and despair,
Pressure and put-downs.
More present than the air we breathe,
Or the noise we make,
Or the sound of silence.
The darkness can never overcome it,
This light, this love stronger than death,
Shines on in the gloom and the night,
More present than we can know,
More than we can feel, sense or touch,
More than we can see or visualise.
Sometimes so evident to us,
Sometimes we strain for a glimpse, or a clue.
The darkness can never overcome it,
This light, this love stronger than death,
Shines on in the cynicism and distrust.
Not reliant on our strength, or our ability,
Our religious ways, or our goodness.
The darkness can never overcome it,
This light, this love stronger than death,
Shines on in the darkness,
In the day and the night,
In the past, the present and the future.
This love shines on.
