FOR THE AURORAS: A SONG FOR THE UNSUNG HEROES AND HEROINES

Someone tried to dim your light

But you are screaming colour, dancing even in the night sky Aurora

Someone tried to silence you

But your voice rings true in us here agora

Amour

We pay no attention to what comes out of man's mouth for you are evidence of God

And to call you anything but what you are is blasphemy

Sacrilege

Someone tried to take you away from us

But love never dies

So we dry our eyes and commemorate you with laughter and moments of silence and words and songs

Someone tried to turn you into the forgotten

The same someone who tried to drag the sun up from the west and pull it down to the east

So they scattered you into the air like dust and you turned into stars

The tried to wash you away and you coloured the ocean

Aurora you are the beacon, the northern star and the southern light

The crescendo

Too present to ever be lost to memory

You are the unsung hero and shero

And this one is for you.
