City Lights


Paint an expanse of darkness

With specks of sparkling light

That dance like little shards

Burning ever bright

And if you cannot illuminate

At least catch fireflies in a jar

To light the way in needful times

Or maybe keep a few spare stars

But I see other ways to shine down

Light a lamp or billboard sign

Light a candle by the window

And you will know that it is mine

Each one spreads the glow

Till it speckles the dark night

I can see them dancing as I watch

That’s the beauty of city lights
