The darkness in my heart forced me into the night
To a silver-colored sky and stars of laser light.
I heard nothing but the crickets and a night bird’s call
The air was fresh and there was no one at all
But the Pink Moon shining and the Big Dipper’s display
Who, together, calmed my fears and seemed to say,
“The world is hurting and the pain is real,
But the heavens will always make the storms be still.”
I stared a little longer at the celestial art…
…a picture of peace that stilled my heart.
I pray the skies embrace you and the stars kiss your face,
Until we meet down the road in a better time and place.
