I sat in the dark; cold, alone, without hope
and the world for me had ended.
Then from the cold blackness came a small light
and a hand reached out from the darkness
"Come with me" said a soft voice
"Take my hand, for I know the paths
through this dark land to a new world.
And so I reached out and took the hand,
and that little light exploded and filled my world
For the journey we had taken was not one of miles,
feet or inches but a journey of understanding.
