I’m grateful to the gods that be

for being somewhere near to me

I thank the heavens for the time

they waste

on this mere mortal

I count my lucky stars at night

for showing me a useful light

I just don’t know the reason why

they shine

so I can see them

I know the time we have is short

for all the loves that we must court

I simply take what’s offered me

and wait

to see tomorrow
