Lyra’s Song (poem)

Here’s a campfire song written my the main character during a dark moment of a charted series…
Smoke is rising from the fire untended
New rains cleanse that which seeks
Snow falling from a broken branch
Winds sweep forever unseen peaks.
Voices eddy, bodies flow
Leaders ask which way to go
Stories pass from race to race
People learn a rightful place
Death provides the strength to live
Life supplies the strength to die.
Dark and light both cease to be
When an other says good-bye.
Death provides the strength to live
Life provides the strength to die.
Light and shadow both cease to be
When the other says good-bye.
The daylight is fading slowly
Will we ever see a perfect day?
A voice inside me is saying
I believe someday we may.
And if there is no tomorrow
Then let us enjoy the evening
The stars are shining brightly
The fire chatters merrily.
But I believe there will be tomorrow
And that day will succeed finite day
Greatest fears will become mere shadows
Greatest enemies will become friends
Always seize the dream and day
Do so gently, no need to be cruel
See the day dawn in those around you
Circle yourself with an inner sun
Be your own sunrise, your sunset
Make your own winds and waves
Your own trees of love and wells of hope
Sink mistakes and dig for care
Look at your loved ones and see the sun
Look at your friends and see the stars
Look at a stranger and see the night
Look at yourself and you will see the same.
And if there is no tomorrow
Then let us enjoy the night
The stars are shining brightly
The fire chatters merrily.
But I believe there will be tomorrow
And that day will follow finite day
Compared to the sun of full blown hope
The most secret fears will disappear
