remember this

“You’ll understand when you’re older”

His voice, soothing aching hearts

Calming the mind

Of the young child

Emerald Isle eyes

Opening wide to the possibilities

That

Even in darkness

The moon shines brightly

Reflecting sunlight

A reminder of

When

The stars were hung in the sky just for her

Long before the battle scars were won

Persisting long past closing time

And the locking of the universe

Behind her as she leaves
