Hold it well, for
Lost in the darkness
All that comes will not be seen.

Though you shove frantically
Into the passing crowds,
A step back will be your reward.

Why sleep when you can lie awake
Thinking of what's to be -
Like a candle waiting to burn.

You who hold the light!
Share your gains with the sleepless
And watch their faces fade.

And for the thoughtless,
Wonder far enough,
And you might join me still.
