It is difficult moving
from the Center
of their Universe . . .
that Universe that now
has grown out and beyond
the habitat of Mother Moon
and Father Sun.

Orbs, we were once,
shining in their eyes
lighting the days and nights
with love and comfort
kissing wounds and making
cupcakes grow in the oven.

It is difficult watching
the flame die
seeing both of us
becoming little stars
visible sometimes  . . . at Sunset.

And yet . . .
this is how it is meant to be
this is how new galaxies
are born and life's circle
completes itself
over and over again.

Soon we will be immortalized
of this I am sure
for truly
it was Love that brought us here
and Love that will remain
when all the other stars have burned away.

Ahh! . . . letting go of Stardom can be difficult.

The Song

 photo little-boy-girl_pr76450_zps0f2dc8ac-1_zpsdfb00dfc.jpg

The girl child
grew like a vine
attaching herself
to any strong oak
in the forest
while the boy child
ran wild and tall
foraging and digging
for nuggets of gold.

One day
they found each other
by a silver stream that
bubbled and sang
of a strange new song
they had yet to hear.

their eyes opened wide
and caught sight
of their fingertips touching
and softness grew
up their arms
and into their hearts.

This was the beginning
of yearning . . .

and this became the Song.
