Moonlight shining thicker than a blanket of snow upon the grass.
Meeting the dark shadows in stark contrast.
An obsidian expanse glitters like a child's sweet innocent eye.
'Adventures await, ' The stars whisper as I lie.
And yet I know there is far more to the sky than what little I see.
Like the night sky, I only see a limited reality.
But with every precious breath that my Creator supply,
I know among the stars one day I will fly.
