Continuing Light

There are stars

whose radiance

is visible

on Earth

though they have long been


There are people

whose brilliance continues

to light the world even though

they are no longer among the living.

These lights

are particularly


when the night is


They light

the way

for humankind.

Hannah Szenes, Hungarian soldier
