CELESTIAL LOVE


CELESTIAL LOVE

The astronomers explain that it takes -
Thousands of light years for light,
Travelling from those distant stars,
To reach our eyes!
We are constantly viewing the present
With light from the past!
Some of those celestial bodies
Have already dissipated, and gone out
of sight!
Yet they appear to be, since their light, -
Remains visible before our eyes!

So be it, I thought;
When one day, I too shall perform this
vanishing trick,
My love,
May the light of my love continue to
shine, shower and bless you,
For now and evermore,
When like an old star, I too shall dissipate
out of sight!

There! little girl; don't cry!
They have broken your doll, I know;
And your tea-set blue,
And your play-house, too,
Are things of the long ago;
