A Little Light


A Little Light
-by Mikki Brain

In that dark, lonesome place
between a dream dreamed
and a dream realized,

I have left a little light for you
so you will know that someone cares
and believes in your dream.

Just where it becomes the most dark
and difficult to find your way,
there is the light I left for you.

it will light your way through the doubt,
the confusion, and the fears.

It will stay with you all the way
to the realization of your dream.

And when your dream has come true,
please go back to that darkest place
where you have been,
and set the little light there
to give heart to the next trembling soul
that braves the path to its dreams.


(a poem from a book given to me by my dad)

"Jesus said, 'I am the Light' "
-John 8:12


  1. I love this poem......This post for was me today; It speaks to certain issues in my life where I am trying to discern which way God is leading me......I see the flicker of light but can't make out the next step......I know He is faithful and when I am ready, He will provide the answer.......

    Hugs and blessings,
