What is night?
Mere absence of light?
Or is it something more ...
perhaps the moment one's soul first feels total blight?
What is death?
The absence of life?
Or is it something else ...
eternal rest, or the end of pain and strife?
What is God?
An interceding force?
Or is He just a dream ...
man's mind His only source?
Can such questions e'er be answered in a world bereft of sun?
Or are they simply memories of he who hoped
that someday questions and answers would be one?
