515 Night Sky Hopes [17 September 2002]

every night
do I gaze into the starlit sky
I do not search for
a certain constellation
or a favorite star
I search for an answer
one that will alleviate
my despaired loneliness
fill me with purpose and hope
but never to be fulfilled
I always look once more
only to turn my eyes
and my heart earthward
faced with reality and logic
though my soul wishes to spread its wings
soaring with the creatures of night
as it would were it free.
but its release can not come about
until someone finds me
for only he has the key
