Lighting the Way

Law of Fair Exchange

I met a stranger in the night
Whose lamp had ceased to shine;
I paused and let him light
His lamp from mine.

A tempest sprang up later on
And blew the world about;
And when the wind was gone,
My light was out.

Then back again the stranger came;
His light was glowing fine.
He held again the precious flame
And lighted mine.

What do these words mean to you?
To me it means that we need to be there for each
other through the rough times when
the world blows about.
Take care, dear friends, and be there for
someone today.
