Continuing Light

There are stars

whose radiance

is visible

on Earth

though they have long been

extinct.

There are people

whose brilliance continues

to light the world even though

they are no longer among the living.

These lights

are particularly

bright

when the night is

dark.

They light

the way

for humankind.

Hannah Szenes, Hungarian soldier
