When it comes time for the darkness to begin burning,
the reluctant rays of light will be yearning.
To last longer than a day.
To illuminate and show the way.
For clearer paths without shadow for misstep.
To give unobstructed light to guide,
time and duty demands it acquiesce,
to the blanket of lights emptiness,
yet lest men stumble,
with sight not far,
it illuminates in night,
with moon and stars.
