Like a guilty party reveller,

the light tiptoes its way in slowly,

hoping that it will enter unnoticed.

In a world of on and off switches,

it still prefers to do things the old-fashioned way:

gradually, gracefully, compassionately.

Even those who dread a new start,

have the time to change their mind.

About everything.
