Last night we gathered on a ship
Our tribe and all our friends,
And sailed for distant galaxies
To find a peaceful land.
The stars received us as we went
Our lives passed through their gaze
We sailed between their fire and light
Our eyes were all ablaze.
Until we reached a port of sorts
With meadows near a sun
And joyous children running round
Who welcomed us at once.
They ruled this planet with a light
That shone from their deep eyes.
And no one wanted anything
Nor did they fear to die.
For there upon a mountain top
Far as the eye could see
There was one child who filled the world
With love and mysteries.
And when the children grew too tall
No longer children were
They climbed the mountain to the boy
And left through heaven’s door.
We were entranced and climbed so high
To see his glowing face.
He smiled our way
The mountain sang
We died in his embrace.
And then I woke amid the sails
That guide my ship at night
And prayed that I would see again
This boy who was the light.
