I am the black night at your window.
I am the stars in your eyes.
I am the pain in your mind.
I am your thoughts when you’re thinking and the tears in your eyes.
I am the beating of your heart.
I am the turning of your life.
I am the breeze in your hair and the footsteps at your back
I am the passage behind you and the future before you.
I am with you always, yet I am never there.
I am the sandman when you are tired.
I am your energy when you’re awake.
I am your feelings and emotions.
I am your strength to fight.
I am your guide in all lives.
I am all these things to you but you do not know me.
Who am I?
