Distant Stars

The most distant stars
are there to bring us light
within the darkness of the night

a comfort unrestrained
resolves the guilt and pain
of life in time

for timelessness is yours and mine
in this, the night the never ends
no longer need we play, pretend

that it is otherwise
for the moon is on the rise
and every answer ever sought
lies within the realms that caught

attention in the still of night
when distant stars, still burning bright
will hear

prayers of the far and near
and answer every question asked
for that has ever been their task

and every answer ever found
circles round and round
the center of it all

as even dewdrops call
in the language of the heart
that all may stop, to feel
to start to love
