Yesterday was cold and dark

and you were little, very small

almost feeling like a tiny ant –

on the edge, ready to fall?


Today you are getting stronger,

as you step and look beyond

and the night is getting shorter

though your heart is still afraid.


Tomorrow… who knows?

Tides of light will wash away

all the dirt lurking in the corner.

Fly, dreamer, see you again!
