:: Soliloquy for a Shooting Star ::


:: Soliloquy for a Shooting Star ::



Stars are never meant to shine forever,
But stars are meant to light and guide the way
As constellations, they track the planets
Hence the Gregorian calendar, used today.

And, thus, we are, the molecular clouds 
Waiting to crumble under our gravity
While some wait a hundred years, and then, more.
Other stars, like you, confront brevity.

Thus, it was a blinding flash of brilliance
That lit the hearts of all your friends you made.
And as your sparkle soften and grow dim
Your friends will continue to light the crusade.

As you join the meteor shower 
Blazes a trail into the Milky Way
I'll wave you goodbye and shed a tear
We will meet in the stars, again, someday.
