Follow thy fair sun

1 Follow thy fair sun, unhappy shadow;
2 Though thou be black as night,
3 And she made all of light,
4 Yet follow thy fair sun, unhappy shadow.

5 Follow her, whose light thy light depriveth;
6 Though here thou liv'st disgrac'd,
7 And she in heaven is plac'd,
8 Yet follow her whose light the world reviveth.

9 Follow those pure beams, whose beauty burneth;
10 That so have scorched thee,
11 As thou still black must be,
12 Till her kind beams thy black to brightness turneth.

13 Follow her, while yet her glory shineth;
14 There comes a luckless night
15 That will dim all her light;
16 And this the black unhappy shade divineth.

17 Follow still, since so thy fates ordained;
18 The sun must have his shade,
19 Till both at once do fade,
20 The sun still proud, the shadow still disdained.

I thought that this one was very moving. Sort of makes me think of me. I'm always trying to be around this one person because they are so good. I figure that it might rub off on me or something. Yet I am still disdained.

*This is the theme poem of Shadow of the Light!

"Show me a hero and I shall write you a tragedy."

I LOVE YOU! (God does too.)
