"An Epiphany"

An Epiphany
By Patricia Gallant

When we see things in a new light,
We realize what we could not see,
For our racing minds kept us in the dark,
But now we have an epiphany.
We do not always know the way
When our trials are sad and rough,
But a guiding light appears to us
And helps us with support and love.
We learn new ways every day,
For that is what it is to live,
To struggle and fight and cry,
To learn how to accept and give.
The light bulb blinks above our heads
Telling us discovery is near.
We open our hearts, minds and eyes.
We discover what we need to hear.
Our guardian angels have led the way
To help us through troubled times.
And the gift we learned through it all
Is that the sun will always shine.
