A Shooting Star

Dedicated to my gorgeous, patient, beautiful wife

saw your shooting star tonight

shattering the black of the night

cutting the dark apart

flying across your amber palette

burning bright for all to see



let your light shine

my darlin’

flying to where?

that’s your mystique

just keep flyin’

my darlin’



you shine best

on the darkest of nights

under the new moon

burning brightly

chasing my dark away

my darlin’



that’s what you do best

dragging me to the light

that’s you

my darlin’

  1. Hi M –

    Some of this poem runs off outside of your grey box…

    Also, the two names: mikenexsus and mike emmrrich makes it seem like two persons are involved..

    But I should talk..:-)! My site is a mess..
