Darkness descends and all is quiet
On this very crisp starry night.
Like a beam of light traveling
The Heavens...with-out begining.
Endlessly persuing life's quest
With out reward and with out rest.
Not fearing the dark and unknown
Accepting what fate has thrown.
Finding...in the smallest of things
Beauty...with the joy that it brings.
Being humble...like a grain of sand
Held in a child'e enquiring hand.
Surrendering with-out a fight
On this very still...starry night.
