If There Were No Stars

01 Feb


If there were no stars,
nor sky to hang clouds on,
if the oceans had no tides,
nor sands upon the shores;
where would we run to
when we chase the wind
in our most playful dance,
lost in our own abandon,
and where would we fly to
when we must then retreat
to our hideaway places,
to quietly fade from earth?

If earth can hold the weight
of this path we now follow,
and wind carries the flight
of wordless breath in ardor,
if night were a void of time
in which no life were found;
where shall we shed tears
when the weight of sorrow
is too much for us to bear,
and where shall we slumber
when sighs we leave behind
fall silently into oblivion?
