when i’m alone i like to leave on the light
that with the shadows cast back to night
i can carry on the day’s illusion of sight,
and in so doing it is possible that i might
find a certain peace of mind, however slight
as i sleep a deeper sleep and continue to fight
against encroaching disease, this present blight,
til’ morning comes with risen hope – however slight
