Night appears and chases day

Stands to watch the starlight play

Noticing one that outshines the rest

Reflecting, a glow, upon her chest

Wraps her in stardust, ever true

She watches, as mountains fade from view

No longer does the sun remain

Darkness, once again, shall reign

As she blends in with the midnight sky

And stars gently twinkle, before they die

For she is the one who chased away light

Beauty now gone, from her blinded sight

Once she was a beacon, to shine the way

Now, in the dark, filled with dismay

Hoping one day, she will shine, again

She can only wait, for she knows not when
