A Night Beyond the Horizon

By the sky I raise my sights
By the moon I stare insights
By the grass I lay my delights
By the hills I see the lights

The moon as I see through glancing
Line of hopes continue growing
As I crawl the mountains with pain in rain
Feel the beginning a chant of gain

Steps are millions toward the shore
Leaving the home for the longed for
Though nights deny long time before
A simple mind I can ignore

Shadows come as star falling
The eastern sky the night's belonging
Through evening star flies my calling
West horizon star be landing
