In Memoriam

By Denise Gould, Courtesy of Department of Defense

A billion tiny lights dancing aimlessly in space,
A trillion tiny people dawdle on, keeping face.
A quadrillion dreams and hopes fly upward to the sky.
With every soul asking, "Is there a reason why?"

Two beams of light standing there and counting loss,
Is not a just trade for this day and tempest toss.
These lights can't illuminate a place where there's no light,
But they can promise future, a day when we'll have sight.

Keep looking up...

'Til next time.
