The Question

He had heard the question asked so many times

from adults and children

on days when light spilled from the sky

and days when the sun was just a forgotten friend

He had heard it asked through tears and through laughter

day time and night

Heard it asked in churches and temples, synagogues and mosques

heard it sung in the hallows of sleep

and whispered in the gaze of candlelight

But ever since he had seen the silent sky on new moon night

he knew the answer

We were born to witness the stars into being
