Beyond A Distant Star - Poem by Elizabeth Ungemach

An image from the distant past sits inside a frame
Two happy people smiling and dancing in the rain
I look into the shining eyes of whom I'll never see or hear
The one's who gave me life
And washed away my fear
If only they could see me now
I think they would be proud
The only silver lining on a dark and painful cloud
I never got to know them
For when they died, I was so young
They fought and sacrificed their lives to save their only son
But, I know someday I'll see them again
When my time has come
And we will be a family
Me, my father, and my mum
Until the day we meet again, they watch me from afar
They keep me safe and happy
From beyond a distant star
