via Sunset tie 1.
‘Tis such a long way to the star
Rising above our shore
It took its light to come so far
Thousands of years and more.
It may have long died on its way
Into the distant blue
And only now appears its ray
To shine for us as true.
We see its icon slowly rise
And climb the canopy;
It lived when still unknown to eyes,
We see what ceased to be.
And so it is when yearning love
Dies into the deepest night:
Extinct its flame, still glows above
And haunts us with its light.
