If

If poetry can touch hearts
Let’s reach for the sky
In the night of desolation

The bright stars
In the constellation of our souls
Will be without doubt
The smiling face of our beautiful children

Their love of fun and exploration
Of a yet unknown world
Emerging talents of tremendous depth
Will paint an aurora of bright light!

Shining on the shadows
Of later stages of life
What joy and delight they bring to late night
Brilliant stars In the firmament
Jewels in my dreams.
