Passing through the shadows of life, all I could see was a tiny ray of light,
It made me forget all about the darkness and the fear,
Even this tiny ray of light gave me hope and optimism,
Life does work in mysterious ways I wondered.

Forgetting the emotional turmoil, those tears, the pain,
All I wanted was for this ray of light to stay with me, and if possible turn brighter,
For it to guide me, help me cross this dark tunnel,
But little did I know that even this tiny ray of light would eventually extinguish,
Alas, life didn’t fail to surprise me even at the darkest of times!
