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

~~~

    This is so beautifully written. Love compared to the infinite beauty of the sky. The way you ended it is gorgeous. Brad it said I wasn’t following you. This is happening with many sites I have been following for two years. Anyway you are one of my very favorite poets so I would never stop following you my friend. I am sending my love to you. Hugs to you Brad. Your loving friend Jonikins ❤️🤗❤️🤗
