The Man from the Land of the Sun

SF 079/a>

Out of the cold, arid darkness you came

A man from the Land of the Sun

and took my hand…

In the black, bottomless darkness

murky ocean of fathomless disasters

The man from the Land of the Sun

brought light

Plunging headlong

in cold, bitter darkness

in a morning of frozen air

blinded by freezing rain

we cheated a very possible end

The times were lean

and the clouds were heavy

but the man from the Land of the Sun

brought light and love to me

I venture out now

and face a sometimes bitter and blind world

made better now

when the man from the Land of the Sun

bestowed secrets upon me

bearing the meaning of life

shiny, priceless trinkets,

and placed them in my care
