In the valley where you can’t see the sun set  

when the height of stone blocks not the sun rise always rising  

for those who are in the valley of hope  

for ours is a short walk to the sun as it gave light to the moon  

for the moonlight we work and pray that we will have sunny days of days at home  

homes not shelter when the stars bring on the nite  

nite dangers for those who do not pray who’s home are outside with the stars at nite  

pray or be the prey is the code of the street for the homeless at nite  

always praying that you may see another sun set giving light to the noon  

in the valley of hoping for a place to call home
