The Star-filled Night

by Mandy Doerr

The star-filled night
Tenderly wraps me in it's fingers of light
And draws me past other worlds
To the open arms of infinity

Joy and Sorrow pass my view
Together in Harmony
Defeat and Victory whirl by
Barely distinguishable from each other

Melodies swell and fade
Contrasting - interweaving
A spellbinding orchestration
That threatens to hold me captive

Then comes a glimpse of infinity
With its offer of freedom to my soul
But my heart quakes at the sight
And quickly returns me to Earth
