In the Dark of the Night

In the dark of the night
I lay upon the cold grass
Looking up to the moon
A sky bursting with stars.

In the dark of the night
I lay upon the ground
Looking up into space
Clouds masking what I know to be behind.

Hope is like this
Sometimes seen
Sometimes unseen
Nevertheless, always existing.
