In between the obsidian skies

Nestling amongst the stars

There’s a galaxy of souls.

Ethereal guardians who

Reside in spirit dust. They’re

Star lighters in darkness and

Turn on luminous beacons

Every night. Guiding all the

Lost energies and grieving

Lonely mortals, they are the

Apparitions of life. Death

Revived watching over you.
