When a blind man saw the light

'Twas when I lost you that I found you,

When my heart woke up at last,

When I saw you in the light that I,

Once saw you in the past.


A light that shone so brightly,

A light that slowly dimmed,

Like a moon that slips behind a cloud,

Our light was wearing thin.


No glow remained to speak of,

No embers I could find,

Rose ashes in a cold fire grate,

Vague memories on my mind.


I woke to find you weeping,

In the half-light before dawn,

I couldn't breath, I couldn't think,

How could I be so wrong?


I swear I heard your heartbeat,

I asked if I should go?

I held you close, lump in my throat,

Relieved when you said ‘No’.


'Twas when I lost you that I found you,

When the scales fell from my eyes,

When a blind man finally saw the truth,

When a blind man saw the light.
