darkness engulfed 
daylight
the moon hid
in the clouds

in the sky
twinkled
only a star
isolated and lonely

we sat down
by the street
with warm coffee
in cold evening

you talked about
circumstances,
plans, dreams and
failed attempts

i listened to
all your words
quietly
so did the star

we prayed
upon the star
eyes closed
and heads bowed

the star vanished
as it took
your story and
our secret prayers

hope he gets
the message
and bestows his
love and grace
