Reclined beneath a vast dark sky
I began to ask my questions to the night.
I begged for a revelation
And asked my heart to be spared this time;
I made promises to the stars and asked them for guidance
My heart beating in turmoil inside
Aching as it bent this way and that
Until suddenly and gently,
As if the night embraced me and whispered in my ear
It became clear
That all my tears and cries were given in vain
Because I’m healthy and loved
and my biggest concern is finding my life’s passion;
Fulfilling my still unknown destiny.
I felt silly complaining to the stars
So I thanked God for the life I have
I dried my tears
Read your goodnight text
And stood up to sleep in my warm queen size bed.
