Where I Am

Somewhere a light flickers,way off in the distance

Yet there is a resistance between that light and me

For I yearn to see the world in its glowing

Still,I can't help knowing that it's not meant to be

But I can dream and imagine all of the splendor

The tender caresses of light on my face

In a place of comfort and deep introspection

Where the only direction is directly toward grace

I have dreamed of this moment forever and always

Through this maze I've traveled beyond and below

And that glow,it's now closer that ever

But I'll never partake of its radiant flow

For I'm destined to stay forever shrouded

Behind clouded remnants of a dream overdue

Where you don't exist and I'm quickly forgotten

So,beneath the rotten timbers,I view

As that distant light flickers,just beyond my grasping

And the moments lapsing increase over time

Till they climb beyond possible reaching

Thus teaching a lesson only known to the mime
