Once a whisper on a quiet night
all existence painted its shadow
Once captivating as beauty an light
the world's significance  became shallow

People faded into nothing
and their smiles became a wisp of air
Like a once-flowing, but now drying stream
only filled by old despair

The lonely night turned dark and stormy
and within moments the twinkling ceased 
The inviting solitude grazing all corners
and the mesmerizing greatness of it finally sinking in ...
