If you light a lamp for someone, that same lamp lights your path.
There are times, when I’m wide awake in a state of sleep.
Times when in the midst of a bad dream, I can see deep-
Into the soul of a world so sad it cannot tell,
The haven of heaven, apart from the ruin of hell.
Then there are times, when I’m asleep in a wakeful state,
So that I must be dreaming with my eyes open wide,
To see the vision of a knight riding on a mare-
On a quest to quench the thirst, of that us did try to scare.
