Every day

A new galaxy is born

In my universe

With fresh eyes of hope

Open to the old deepening darkness,

Where God keeps on hiding Himself;

And every day,

Feeling to be closer to Him,

I smile like a child

Playing hide-and-seek with his father.


But how unfair!

The game will stop unfinished,

And my universe will explode

Like a bubble

With a sigh.
