There's a light on in the window
Just to let you know I'm here
So, wherever you are going--
Remember, I'm still near.
Feel secure and safe in knowing
That my love will never change
Regardless of appearances--
My love remains the same.
There is nowhere you could travel
That, for me, is too far away--
I'll go where you desire
Beside you, I will stay.
I'll live within your heart
Forever-- Nothing will
Ever change this truth--
That I am with you, still.
Yes, there's a light on in the window
To where my soul can see--
While gazing out, upon you,
You're looking in, at me--
You see the person I've become
Yet, who I used to be--
You see my light, still shining
My love-- Eternally.

Dorothy's wrote this poem for a net friend,
whose mother is in the last stages of Alzheimers.
It brought tears to my eyes as I remembered, a light
on in the kitchen window, and my mother coming to the
back door to greet me whenever I came home.
