Lightyears Away



As you twinkle in the night sky

I know your light travels so fast

But what I behold with my eyes

Is just a glimpse of your past


The vast distance found in between

The bright you and the earthly me

Ancient history is left to be seen

And all that time can offer to see


Even now, as you radiant glow

All I can find is your youth

If this time is all I can know

Then how do I find your truth


Yet, how blessed must I surely be

That you still shine brightly up there

A beautiful sparkle in my night sky

With a light that is so very rare


It takes years to get here to me

And you are seemingly everlasting

But the one thing I hope to never see

Is the moment of your celestial passing
