Dedicated to my Dear Friend Michael…
who inspires me to see differently


Oh most beautiful star

In the sky tonight

You are most bright

I watch and wait

With hand raised up

Open and waiting

Slowly, oh so slowly

You move through

The night sky

You come closer

As I watch and wait

Hand outstretched

Then ever so softly

You come to rest

In the palm of my hand

You shine like a diamond

Your brilliance

Holds me in awe

I could almost wish

To hold you tight

To keep you safe just for me

In time, your light

Would fade from sight

You would die

To me and to all

So I let you stay

As long as you wish

With palm open

So you may leave at will

You will travel back

To the night sky

To shine brightly

For all to see

I will cherish

The moments you gifted me

With your light

Specially for me

For a little while…

Star So Bright

This is exactly the way I feel about Mademoiselle Esse. How incredible that someone can do that to one's being! This poem deserves five stars (or more if you like). Thank you for this offering. Love and peace to you, Ann.

Every soul can give us a part of their light to share if we are able to see it. Your poem showed me that you understand that- lovely work.
