The grief that comes to weary lives, alone
In stormy nights of gloom when love has fled,
Will rise and fill the silence that has grown
With words of anguish felt but never said.
While swiftly falling tears may overflow
As tranquil rain, a mirrored star will cheer
The one who'll see through falling mist the glow
Of curving distance coming faintly clear.

Why live in gloom when heaven bows in prayer
And touches earth and swings a light for all,
Then covers pain with healing warmth of air
While stars in eerie darkness seem to fall?
Though looking down, acquire a new belief
In stars of hope. They'll shine in pools of grief.
