They Are There

The time is today
to end the reluctance and delay
by looking deep inside
where there does reside
feelings that should no longer hide
and are meant to be
for all to see.

It is all about what really could
come from doing good
without any worry of being misunderstood,
standing for what is true
and always right...
being a comforting glowing light
in times of desperate need
when darkness might otherwise succeed.

Yes, they are there...
those feelings underlined with care,
lurking deep inside
just waiting for you to decide
to do what you would want done
if it were your loved one.
