A Parent’s Yearning

We long to show our children
A better life ahead,
And so we tell them fairy tales
Before they go to bed

But just like shadows on the wall
Get hidden by the night,
We sometimes lose the picture when
We cannot find the light

But we cannot despair for long:
The stars again unfurl,
When we will spin more stories of
A better kind

Of world
