Ode to the night sky

O, lovely moon

That hangs from the velvet —

Cast thy eternal glow

on thy meager yet hopeful gaze

as I continue to ponder

my purpose amidst the haze.

Let thy stars serve as beacons

as I search for thy destiny

let the stars guide the way

and never let me be led astray.

Let the night winds blow

Amidst the hollowness of silence

blanketing the world

In an ephemeral hush.

Let thy night sky blanket thy thoughts

As I lie down and forget the chaos

Let the sky solace thy mind

As thy mind and body bid goodnight.
