While I reached for the stars,
I neglected the flowers.
In my dream to conquer,
I left everything that was dear.

I finally understood.

By the waves,
That brushed against the shore.
By the sunshine,
That gave life to plants.

Hollow aspirations
Held no value to this cycle.
How are you now?
We were once inseparable,
You and I
Now, our melodies don't harmonise.
We still have words to say.
So please, stay
For a little longer
And sing with me once again
For this sweet dream's
Bitter end.
I sat there, gazing at the empty sky
But what I saw,
Was the desolate beauty
of a vast universe.
And it gave me a vision
An illusion
Of a million stars.

A stranger in the night
Blessed with a starry sky.

— The End —
