Ray of light,
You are the song of harmony I sing, day and night.
You are the sunshine of happiness that illuminates my ways so bright!
You are the vision of hope that comforts when I pray for sight.
You are the wings of felicity, wind of devotion that aids my flight.
When I weary in the struggle and wane in might,
You are the anthem of courage that plays to fight.
I live for your joy and ascent, to help you attain the heights.
Please know, even when you slowly age and blight,
You remain the song that I will–for the rest of my days–recite.
My ray of light, your love is picture perfect…you frame my life!
~Ikenna Q Ezealah
