And all along I never did see my own light

And all along
I never did see, my own light
I never knew it shined so bright
Until, one night
The moon did smile down upon me
And all the stars in the sky, they waved
Why, the whole universe embraced
You see
You may not see your own light
But other’s surely do

Poem written by Athey Thompson
