How many stars have lived and died?
Memories as old as time.
She smiles her light upon the world.
While her sisters dance and swirl.
Blackness surrounds the dance they do.
Ancient lights that are now new.
The pattern repeats, day in day out.
Till the lights all fade, no life about.
But that is so very far away,
we need not worry today.
Still, what should mankind do then,
if left alone in the dark?
Should we live that long,
we’ll have learned to be strong.
Smarter than we are.
We’ll make a brand new star.
New life, rebirth, starting again.
Yet let’s not forget where we’ve been.
