Dark is the Night

"Dark is the night." The son will say.
"My son take flight! Fly swift and silent, be deadly in the dark light!" The father will tell.
"Do not go! Leave this useless plight to another!" The mother will order.
"Yes, listen to your mother, who nursed you from a babe, and fed you from her breast!" The wife will cry.
"You are my life. I do this for you." The son will go.
And so the women will cry.
And the father will die.
And so they will live, forever in our minds.
Long after the tears have dried and the son has returned to new life and light.
Long were their lives but after time, they ceased to be.
