Daystar's Home - Poem by Obed dela Cruz

Is there a spot where the sun lays to rest
When brightness escapes into the night sky?
Is there a cradle the stars call their nest
Where they can leave the sadness that passed by?

Is there a world where my heart can find peace
Because light appears in every corner?
Where is this cosmos the day does not cease
Nor hide even once, nor set to slumber?

I know it is somewhere in time and space,
Perhaps still keeping itself from our view
Until it finally unfolds in place
To be specially seen by me and you.

Because I believe there is more to learn
Of this residence, this sanctuary.
It is a temple where I always yearn
To walk on and find out its mystery.

For I heard that dawn is ever waking
There in its horizon, its glorious spheres
And the morning dew is always taking
Away the memories causing our fears.

Go, my spirit, and take wing to this land
It is not as far as you imagine.
Fly until on its very courts you stand
And utter the cry that was kept within.

Because this is your home; here, you can be
The soul can always have inspiration.
Beyond the edges, today you are free
It goes more than just seeing a vision.

But take account of the things you perceive
Lest this might be a stardust of the past.
And in remembrance, you know you believe
Never let go and make this journey last.

    This is like casting a glance on the universe around us and watching it vis-e-vis the characterstic activities of a man's life, raising certain queries and trying to seek a plausible answer. Thanks for sharing and Congrats for being selected for the Day. I quote a few lines:
    Is there a spot where the sun lays to rest
    Is there a world where my heart can find peace
    I know it is somewhere in time and space,
