Are there Takers?

Happy you’re to part with

The warmth of your love

Your generous radiance

To all of us.  

Amidst the glowing stars

High above I notice you’re

Stark lonely in the crowd.

 

No one sees you there

Or your blazing face

Despite your sacrifice

All day long.

Your half-day absence

Makes your presence felt 

For the light you provide.

 

Are you tired of burning?

Do you mind bartering

Your duty with someone

For a change?

Are you content giving?

Would you go on forever

Giving yourself endlessly? 

 

‘Yes, if there are takers,’

Said the Sun with a smile.
