Lights in the Darkness, by Daniel Simmons

The car bumped over the rough ground,

and stopped in the tall grass.

We stepped out basked in the light of the distant Midway

The lights from the ancient Ferris Wheel,

Illuminated the last moments of childhood,

Under the flashing bulbs and fireworks

I became an adult.

Summer Age 18,

The glow of fireworks

Lights in the Darkness

Guidance in the night.

And we kiss the moonlight,

Embrace the darkness before the dawn,

Lost and Found

Lights in the Darkness

Supple blankets and laughing voices

Tall grass and memories

Lights in the Darkness
