The Star (poem)

Updated on May 6, 2016

What can I say to ease another day

As twilight seems to settle on a hill

While other hearts await its silken thrill

To see the star which day has cast away


A star to fill a dream that now is still

Yet still it shines forever on display

Still holds my hand hears every word I say

Still offers hope of thrill it will fulfill


And though my star was taken by the sun

And others eyes she happened to delight

And other times she had no shine to share


Onward I drift again to be as one

Amid the star who fills my glass tonight

And when tomorrow comes I will be there

      Poignant and lovely. That's a haunting song, by the way.
