Walk Through The Night

From time to time,
the sun will set on you,
and the night will be long
and the stars will bury their faces
in the folds of a sky full of clouds.

When that happens,
reach out your hands
and take a step.

It is okay to stumble blindly,
so long as you stumble,
and if all of a sudden
there is no ground beneath you,
it is alright if you fall
until the ground comes back.

No matter how long the night,
no matter how dark the stars,
the sun will spill back
over the black horizon,
and flood the world with
orange and yellow and light
and when you can see again
you be standing on ground
your feet do not yet know,
but are ready to learn.
