Drawing Near

All the darkness in the world cannot put out the light of one candle.  OR  Out of all the darkness comes the most magnificient light.
As I yearn for joy to fill my life,
I draw toward happiness.
I am grateful for this gift.
I try to share the feeling.

As my heart grows light,
new people join me.
I lose the loneliness I once had.

As I learn how to love,
I find peace of mind.

I cannot lose the hope we found.
