Winter Lights...

The eternal night surrounded me in a veil of darkness. I floated adrift the Northern sea, cold, hungry, dejected, afraid. The icy water buried deep into my flesh, eating away my memories. It had been a long time since I last saw daylight. I could not remember the radiant glow of sunlight, or the plants which thrive in the joy of day. I have stared long into the empty sky, with tired eyes and an empty mind. How I long for the warmth I used to feel, the joy I used to have, the laughters I used to hear. And yet, here I was, drifting away further into the vast ocean, and into the vast universe of stars above. I shivered at the thought of death. Will there be eternal peace at the other side? I closed my eyes, trying to calm myself down. I opened my eyes again, hoping to drink in the beauty of the starry night at my brink of death. And there they were. Dancing in green, purple and red, the winter lights appear before me. How alive they were! How they reminded me of spirits who are always free! I smiled to myself. Since lights still shine in the winter, there is still hopeā€¦
