Moonlight never maintains its magical glow,
Happiness is hoping that however brief,

Darkness descends, daytime surrenders to night,
Shadows silently steal the gloaming's soft light,
Hapless homeless hasten towards hidden sites,
Darkness redeems us.

Up, up and away on a hot-air balloon;
soaring in exceedingly high altitude,
then it turns into a fight for survival.

It wasn’t long before I pulled into the drive,
Oh, the tears that started rolling from my eyes
I got so many images of what was,
and what isn’t any longer.

Things will be different I would say
as I looked around in my world of gray;
I’d tried so hard to never lose faith,
and to look for brighter days,-
praying for all this pain to go away.
