Stars were already shining
before I was born.
It seems they always will,
but they too shall die.

And the Moon
shall fall from the sky
and the sky shall grow dark
and I feel so scared.

But I’m not alone.
I have found a hand to hold
and a little comfort
in the light of your Heart.

starry-night

we are not
fireflies
dreaming they are
stars

we are
stars
believing they only are
fireflies

nous ne sommes pas
des lucioles
rêvant d’être
des étoiles

nous sommes
des étoiles
qui croient n’être que
des lucioles
