“The stars burning, in the empty sky”…

Here today but,
gone too soon…

Just shooting stars,
not like the Moon…

That hangs around,
in time and space…

Never showing us,
its darkened face…

Remaining forever,
within our view…

Unlike the passing,
of those we hold true…

The ones we love,
become the faces we lose…

God takes the best,
we don’t get to choose…

Who stays or who goes,
to Heaven’s domain…

From the dawn of time,
it’s been the same…

As the departed travel,
into unknown lands…

Leaving behind them,
grieving hands…

Reaching upwards,
towards the sky…

Forever asking,
“Why God, Why”???

But no one answers and
as the silence deafens…

Our turn gets closer and
our mortality is threatened…

Because in many ways,
we just live to die…

There’s no way to stop it,
we can’t even try…

As we’re here today,
but will be gone soon…

Just shooting stars,
not like the Moon…

  1. I enjoy reading your poetry very much. This piece resonates with me and I agree on all of it..except for the line on living to die…and i would like to believe that i live to LIVE…hoping to avert the death part as long as possible…hoping that God sees me with crossed fingers…lol 🙂

    • Thank you for your kind and insightful comment – I see your point of view and agree that we all “live to live” – sadly, regardless of that and out of our control, there is an end point and that was kinda the meaning behind the line 🙂 – Cheers J
