Brighter than the stars at night

Brighter than the stars at night


Nature is colour, the vastness of space, 
The roll of the thunder, the streams gentle waves.
Goodbye fellow being, be gone to the lost.
Cut down by life, we are still counting the cost,
And we may never know what we could have had together, 
But as I stare into the Heaven’s, all I can think about is the weather 
And the seas that rise and the ice bergs that fall.
Goodbye fellow being; goodbye to you all.


Man has been here and left his footprint forever.
Forever changed is this land, crushed beneath tire like a feather,
That no longer flies on the wings of a dove.
Goodbye fellow being.
Goodbye to the love.
Goodbye to this place that we like to call ours.
Goodbye to the planet and hello to the stars.


I am waving a little early, but there is no past.
It is all gone.  This little light is lost, to being out last.
Along pavements and roads to nowhere, I have walked with them all;
That is why I can only stare at the floor 
And hope to see through, but this city gives me no view.
Just architecture, nature, Circle of Life has a puncture.
And we are at a junction…Do we choose right?  
I can no longer see the stars through the city lights...
