I was never the light

Even if you saw me as such

And it’s true

You did

You praised my strength

My resilience

My purity

But I was never the light

Beckoning you from the door cracks

I was never the voice that called you from the darkness

I was with you all along

I too was blinded by the sun as she stretched out her hand

Tracing the path of your tears with her warmth

No, I was never the light

Simply a shadow

That stood behind you through all things

I may not have pulled you out

But I did push you through

I was never the light

But I was always there
