From Crazy Diamond to Borrowed Light
Facetious I may be at times;
but you have light
enough and light to spare, to share, to
see me shine.
The light you see is yours,
the surface mine.
I scatter and reflect.
Maybe I will accumulate in time
enough wisdom to kindle,
like the star you are.
But unless a light be brought to it,
even a diamond cannot dazzle.
MOTIVATION: A much respected friend of mine called me a 'crazy diamond' when I sought advice - I just need to be reminded about what I already knew. But isn't that often the case? We all need friends who will remind us what is right and true. Thank you, John.
