Light in Darkness

By: Becky Reilly

A star, bright, sky’s diamond
Yellow, blue, white, green
A shinier object
Mine eyes have not seen

I have not been told
Of a more unique thing
Not light itself, music,
A crystal, a ring

To learn to fly
Reflected in sea
In rippling green
Staring back is only thee

To sing with your sisters
And learning to fly
And shooting stars squander
Their light through the sky

A million small suns
Cannot banish dark blue
But as light enough
We don’t need them to

To swing, to sigh
To live in the sky
To hope, to pray
To rest in the day

Then when the sky flushes
Its bright orange-pink
And twilight blue steals
The sky, bright light winks
