A Lantern

I am a lantern:

I’ll be your beacon of light

To shine on dark corners -evaporates fright,

I’ll offer you strength when you are weak,

Bestow your confidence but keep you meek,

Shadows are childhood nightmares near,

No need to fret as I am here,

My light is your guide when you are lost,

I’ll show you the way free of cost,

My glow is cheerful and glimmers with glee

To help the blinded finally see,

I am a lantern free of spite

That sleeps through the day and beams in the night.

The End
