"Here is my secret. It is very simple: It is only with the heart that one can see rightly; what is essential is invisible to the eye.."- Antoine de Saint Exupéry

Distant Lights


Tears cradle my sleep, stars smile at me when I wake up
You don’t need to know the depths of my sorrow.
Lost in your life, far far away
You will never know how much I missed you tonight.

A sky of cold distant lights, shimmering, falling,
Flickering restless over my night.
Solitude leaves the cold naked tree standing outside
Just to hold me like you never did.
