For Brenton...

Stars wept for you tonight
when you blew them out--
like candles.
You covered them
with smoke-like clouds;
and then they cried…

 You tried to subdue and disguise it,
but when you lay your head down
on those smoke pillow clouds
under cover of darkness
you let your own tears fall…

 Fifteen years of tears
poured down in rivulets
on my roof.

 And I knew…
that even in heaven
where stars always shine--
you miss your birthdays with us.

 I wanted to stand in that rain--
letting your tears soak through me,
to feel you close to my skin,
to cleanse away some of the pain…

Instead, I stayed inside,
knowing the futility of the rain
to cease our separation.
it was enough to know
that sometimes…
you cry for me too.

Such a lovely thought.

So very heart-wrenching. Yet so very unique. Even rain causes memories in floods. Such strong visuals, one can feel it's written straight from the soul!

"Stars wept for you tonight"...what an image! The kind of rain you speak of here does not fall softly upon the skin, but rather, each drop feels like a burning fire--the pain of loss, of separation. I think it is beautiful the image of your loved one crying for missing you, but also the depth of emotion in this piece goes right to the heart and soul. A graceful expression of pain. My sympathy to you, Cryssa. ~Hugs, Elizabeth

Stars blown like candles, tears like rain that poured down on the roof... beautiful imagery of those essential elements (the stars, air, water) that represent the inner movement of feelings. The strength of lasting memories and bonds.
