English: Moon, Clouds & Treetops. Portland, Or...

The stars so out of reach,
just dreams in restless sleep,

Each a face of longing,
the bright eyes of children
small and frail

behind the darkest clouds
and mists of night,

Give me wings to soar
past the shadows of dark intent

where souls ensconced in chains
no longer dream,

Give me wings to caress each
tiny face

So the lights won’t flicker out

      Thank you so much my favorite Purnimodo. The words are merely hazy reflections of the beauty of children and the desire to protect them. God bless.
