There are many lights in our world and some are truly amazing. Nevertheless you can be one of the bright ones by your works.

I’m a little light

In this vast world

Of lights

But I’m not a bulb

- – -

I may not be

As bright as the sun

On a clear and sunny day

Or as beautiful as the stars

On a starry night

But still I’ve a purpose

- – -

I may not be like a full moon

On a beautiful summer’s night

But still I illuminate

I’m obviously

Not a Triumph Headlamp

Which warns drivers

Of impending danger

Or torch-light that helps us

Find our way in the dark

- – -

I’m not the Light

The Light of all lights

But I’m a small light 

That shines brightly

In this world

By the way I live

- – -

We can all be lights

And although we may flicker

Like a candle

We can still show

The way to those

Who need our help
