what light has gone we will no longer see
beyond the day and far beyond the night
a presence glows without emitting light
it issues no command and no decree
but of the day and night it has the key
we wail and cry and ask it by what right
it has the power to dim or to make bright
though of its presence few of us are free
yet all that's seen will come to us again
its force will come upon us in odd shape
not in our thoughts but always as a vision
it comes upon us with both joy and pain
once in its grasp we know there's no escape
but neither is there any true decision
