In bed as I lie awake
I see yesterday
As I look up at the night's
Cold scarred face

I stare at her face
And ask her to take away
The fold above my eyes
So I may see tomorrow

Her cruel manner denies me
Allows for me to only wonder
To see only what I have done
And what I wanted to do

She lets me only see my blunders
My falls and my sorrows
Casting them unto my, now, pale face
For me to see, with an unceasing force

But in the night, I find a light
A small light I believe is a star
She tries to stop me
But has no power to deny me this star

I strain my eyes to see better
To know how this star looks
I force my legs to move
To get closer to the light

With all her might
The night grasps on to me
Trying to hold me
Not wanting me to touch the light

I move forward and am in reach
To feel the star
The only light in this
Otherwise empty, black night

As I grasp the star
The night is flung away
And the star takes her place
And paints blue what was once black

Now I stay with this star
And I see today
I see tomorrow
And I see you
