The Star (poem)

the_star_poem

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.
