Traveling Through Stardust
And so we get to the end at last my friends.
It was a long way,
But we had Your Company.
And now we fly into your robe.
And now that little beetle
Becomes a golden ray on the grass.
And I am lost, floating through the Stardust
I recollect the light of her beauty.
Her presence everywhere, Yours also.
The light from the stars around me.
But there is a gap between the stars.
The same gap that exists
Between my knowledge and my belief,
Between my will and my feelings.
And now the beetle retake its form through the Stardust.
Why therefore its smile is tearing me apart?
But I will erase this laugh.
I gather with my hands Stardust,
And with Your Power and her light,
I make stars.
I fill with them all the space
And the gap fades out of their light.
The emptiness goes out, and I fly again into Your robe
Bathed by her own laughter.
Fortified in beauty.
And the beetle again becomes a luminous ray,
And is lost away
Extinguishing the last gap.
We are traveling!
