Star (Tribute to Lis Sladen)

You were a star down on Earth;
Now you’re a star in the sky:
Straight up to Heaven
You were destined to fly.

I will never forget
That heartbreaking day,
When it was announced
That you’d passed away.

I could hardly believe it:
Had they made a mistake?
You were so full of life:
Too young for God to take.

Your departure back then
Took us all by surprise:
It broke all our hearts
And made us all cry.

When I see your photo,
I still can’t believe;
For your presence on Earth,
I still sit and grieve.

Two years have now passed
Since you left us behind,
But you’ll stay forever more
In our hearts and our minds.

Poem of the Day

poet Sir John Suckling

Dost see how unregarded now
That piece of beauty passes?
There was a time when I did vow
To that alone;
But mark the fate of faces;
