So many times,
Disillusionment mock you.
He asked,
“Where did truth take you?”

A moonless night it was,
Truth with a sad smile sat beside you.
Silently both of you counted the stars.
When dawn lifted the veil,
Truth rose to leave but you call out,
“What if he teases me again?”
Quietly he says,
“Then I’ll come to find you…”
His words seem to ease your battered heart.
You watch truth walk away,
The first rays of sunlight lending him a radiance.
The next time you meet him again.
