Guardian of the night

Guardian of the night

By May Kwek

Guardian of the night
Quickly take your place tonight
Shine amongst the stars so bright
With your soft silvery light

Guide the lost in the darkness’s cold
Keep them in your comforting glow
Shine the path to their home
Or the path they chose to roam

Dance with the stars in the sky
Across the celestial plains, fly!
From there watch the sleeping souls below
And keep them safe, sound and whole

As the star studded sky you tread
Mark every tear that sheds
And show even though you seem alone
You are never ever really on your own

Oh Guardian of the night
Fail not your duty tonight!
To maintain hope in darkness as the earth turns
And the sun once more returns
