Climbing The Stars

He breathed without a reason to
A sky with just a single star
He turned, and looked right back at you
To hear that music from afar

A sound only he could see,
weeping from that distant light
Silence only he could free
On that shadow they called night

He tiptoed through his tears
And found himself in heavy fog
He saw that you were here
He grabbed your hand and disappeared.
