Brightest they may be
but stars do fade
over time
over distance
their beauty lessens
mortal they be
just not in human terms
so look not to that dark sky
dream upon those fading lights
for a life as beautiful as they lead
for they have nothing but distance
between family and friends
they live not in light
they be fixed, as if confined
looking upon our world
with greater desire than thine
they face time eternal to us
so why envy their plight
look to them
and pray
that one day
they may fall
with joy
shooting across our sky.
