Where the Stars Go

Where do the stars go?
When the sun teases the horizon
A warm orange
Chasing the night blues

Where do the stars go?
When people fill the streets
And the avenues
Like blood cells
Giving our city life

Where do the stars go?
When the clouds sigh
Brisk tears and dreary skies
Sodden and sadden

Where do the stars go?
When the life is gone
For better or worse
All is still
And night comes silent

There the stars go
When they’re needed; I know
