Where there is light, there is a shadow chasing it.

She is the ray of the sun

 

He is the black barrel of the gun

 

Light made pure

 

A shadows cure

 

But there is a night

 

Who answers day's tired plight

 

So she may rest

 

Then he takes up the test

 

To make sure she may be ready

 

And the sun may shine steady

 

Till he must retreat

 

Running as dawn licks his feet

 

But there are some places he may return

 

So he may await his turn

 

Deep in the oceans or caves

 

Or in the coffins in the grave

 

Till he answers her call

 

To take the mantle before she falls

 

Then she may sleep

 

And up night slowly creeps

 

Though he is in his domain

 

To see light free from pain

 

Is his task

 

So in the morn the earth may bask

 

In her light

 

Much to the satisfaction of the dark and night
