Tonight the sky is rose-tinged
in the shade that soothes our tears
painting smiles to cover fears,
serene and soft as darkness falls.
Now deepening to purple,
violet at horizon’s reach
shrouds unknown steeps
in mystery as the shadows call.
Beyond what is above
a woven silk of stars
adorned in silver, waiting to be ours –
once we endure the unremitting night
we’ll free the dawn in incandescent light
