a Star.

A Star.

I sit on the deck of my house far from the restive sea and see

a bright night star I have seen many times before. On rusty

iron decks of ancient ships where heaven and hell are fused

together in the gone hope of the lost. You were more radiant

before and nearer. Is it my eyes or you? I often thought if I

stood on my toes and stretched up, I would be able to touch

you and be blessed. So why didn’t I? You have followed me

in good times and in times unjust, quietly shining asking no

questions, just lightening up my path. My vanishing star soon

you will pale into the galaxy where stars go to pass away.

Without you my nights will be dreamless.
