Christmas Night

Christmas Night

written by: Yuu Ikeda



Stars are falling as snowflakes.

Every prayer blooms
on the ground
full of holy melody.

Candles are swaying,
like breath of the moon
is echoing.

The ladder to the Heaven
illuminates every inch of darkness.

Travelers looking for a lantern
are healed by invisible warmth.

Tonight is a cocoon of relief.
Tonight is a shroud of a blessing.
