The Stars in the Sky by Siri Cervin

When I think of the dark

I think of walking down an endless street

where all the houses are boarded up and no one’s around.

There are sudden movements,

And when I look there is nothing but shadows.

When I think of the light

I think of the first time a baby sees the sun

Through the open window as a new day is being born.

The sun crawls over the horizon,

And the waves get softer as the sky gets brighter.

The dark is scary.

And the light gives life.

Combine the two

and you get the stars in the night sky

whose lights only show

in the darkest of skies.
