Is it dark, my daughter
Has the night sky lost its stars Does the earth reach out in hunger
To the glowing light of Mars?
Or are the planets hiding
In the mourning like the moon
Do not grieve my daughter.
As soon they will return.
The stars will share their brilliance
And the moon will smile again
Nothing lasts forever
And we can learn from pain sorrow has its lessons
If we can but employ
The will to go on living
With courage and with joy
Let not bitterness, my daughter
Blind you to a world
Of beauty and renewal
Where leaves as they unfurl
Reveal a hidden mystery
And nestlings try their wings
Where all that dies is born again
And those who sorrow learn to sing,
