I am no ghost, no phantom
And I’ve chosen to be with you.
We go together, bound for life.
Your light may drown me out by day,
But I am always with you
Beyond the blue sky.
When your light recedes,
contained and settled in the moon,
Gentle against the black night,
My timeless stars emerge without fail.
Do not underestimate the stars
Should they choose, they can
Overwhelm any other light,
Bright, close but fleeting,
It is no match for eternity.
Every star has its story,
And every star has its time.
Each star makes space for its kin,
A harmonising, perfectly attuned
Choir of light.
