Stars


There are times we would like to forget.
These are times when we are feeling down.
These are times when our
Love's star begins to flicker out.
In these sad times we look to our
Friends in life to comfort us.
These friends can only help guide us through
These sad times. They can not replace
The flickering stars in the sky.
Tonight. Look up at the sky and say hello and smile
At your Dad's flickering star.
This will make you miss your dad.
Just a little bit less.
This will remind you of the good times you had.
With your dad.
