Passing through the penumbra*

I see you there
in shadowed space,
midst dark and light--
day and night a tunnel
where you find yourself
since you lost your way.
There is light ahead,
but how to find it?
I'll show you
if you'll let me go
past the shadows.

.*penumbra--a partial shadow, as in an eclipse, between regions of complete shadow and complete illumination.
