The Climb

If hope is the light
towards which we climb
love is what makes us forget the time


If a light goes out when you are near
and your eyes to darkness cannot adjust
know you're still a light
to those below
and the higher up you go
the less their fear
that they too might climb
and disappear

Don't stop—move fast
and trust
when your vision begins to clear
another light will soon appear

high above
at edge of sight

another climber, moving slow

or perhaps
at last
the top

someone hung this rope, you know
