Stars...

 

Millions of years ago

And millions of years from now

We will be looking at the same stars in the same sky

Thinking the same thoughts our ancestors thought

 

Through the bright twinkle in the sky

I am reminded or your eyes

And the dark back drop I am reminded

Of your shadow intertwined with mine

 

The dark cascade of night  

With the pin pricks of hope remind me

That life has not existed for long

But the stars in the sky and the ones in your eyes must be one

 

They’re burning balls of gas

Science has summed these beautiful creations

To something so trivial

How mundane are flaming balls of gas compared to the light that brightens lives

 

These stars that I have stared at night after night

From dusk until dawn

The same ones you laid eyes upon

And thought of me

 

The stars now sit

In mockery of what once was

The beauty and life in a single star

Millions of light years away

 

Like the look in your eyes

When you glanced at me today… 

This poem is about: 
Me
