The night stretches deep

To the ends of the earth

And my eyes touch the stars

As they twinkle and turn

The quiet of dusk

Makes me think of a time

When the world was as cold

As the clear winter sky


Was it laughter or tears

That she wore on her face

As she searched in their hearts

Yet there wasn't a place

The dark of the night

She forgave with a sigh

As she gazed to the stars

In the clear winter sky


Are we the travelers

Our heads in the clouds?

Can we hear the message

And see through the shroud?


The babe lies awake

But there isn't a sound

In the darkest of nights

There is light all around

While she keeps a watch

With a sweet lullaby

The child holds the stars

In the clear winter sky
