Dreaming of Dawn

Darkness creeps ever closer
completely consuming
every flickering star
that dares to shine
within the endless sky

We cannot reach
those ancient children
of space and time
before their light is forever extinguished
by forces
beyond our control or imagination

But we will save a piece
of those tiny flames
in our faulty memories
and keep
those hesitant hopefuls
a little closer
in honor of their
daring dreams of an ending
to the shadows that suffocate
each uncertain opportunity
for light
