Blue skies turning pale pink over glassy water’s face
Day draws to its end and darkness fills the space
Lights reflect the dark water, stars are a-twinkling
And the Moon dances full again on its nightly fling
The black sky of night; Heaven’s canvas of light
Stars guide the way, a sailor’s welcome sight
Road maps painted in stars timeless to common man
Multiplied in the thousands like tiny grains of sand
Fears of the darkness calm with visions of the sky
Man stands below in awe of wonders lit on high
A Face of God shown to man; a wondrous celebration
A Sign of Faith, Love, and Hope; eternal salvation
The Moon emits it yellow glow and changes water’s tides
It conjures romantic thoughts as across the sky it glides
The shooting stars, asteroids, and the Northern Lights aglow
Sends God’s message to all mankind; His love is ever so
Then slowly the darkness fades; the sun again is on the rise
The Moon and stars lose their glow replaced by blue skies
Another day begins its trek toward the coming night
And man will stand again in awe taking in God’s Light
