The title was borrowed from John Tarrant’s beautiful book on soul, spirit, life, and zen.

*****
Light Inside the Dark
When you sleep, your breath sounds to me like the sea in a shell
When I thirst, your kiss tastes to me like water from a deep clear well

You are the light
inside, inside
You are the light
inside, inside
the dark

When I rage, your eyes speak to me of peace
When I despair, your laugh brings to me release, release

You are the light
inside, inside
You are the light
inside, inside

If I can touch you then I might not have to die
Your skin is potent medicine
And in your heart I find the home I never had
Darling come and let me in
Let me in you

When I sleep, you come to me in dreams near dawn
When I wake, I find that you were with me all along
in this song

You are the light
inside, inside
You are the light
inside, inside
You are the light
inside, inside
You are the light
inside, inside
the dark
