She looks out her window

Mesmerized by the midnight sky

A strong gust of December air approaches 

Rolling in like a wave crashing down upon dry sand. 

 

Her light brown hair blows back and her eyes close gently

Her vision blackened now

Her son stands with pride 

His cap tight around his shaved head. 

 

Raising one hand to his hat, he salutes 

With a glimmer to his eyes resembling the midnight sky 

Then his blurry image fades

And she clutches the envelope as a tear drops upon the seal. 

 

Opening her eyes, she looks up at the vast black canvas

Splattered with millions of small silver dots 

And as she shuts her eyes one last time

She takes a deep breath and makes a wish.
