Brightest Star

Rating: 5.0

Destiny has taken away your brightest star
No words of solace can heal this scar
Such nobility and gentleness in his face
Blessed are those who stood in the shadow of his grace
A father to you and a dear friend to many
His companionship was cherished by all
For your broken will to mend,
Time and space God shall bend in the end
Your brightest star watches over you from afar
Whenever you miss him just search in your heart

A nice piece on accepting loss. It's never easy when someone we care for is taken from us, but it is important to remember that those lost live on through us, in our hearts and memories. It is obvious you care deeply about your friend. He's lucky to have you as he works through the acceptance of his fathers passing

Apparently a memory of a lost friend but in fact teaching us that there is a brighter life after death that has no end and a heaven where we shall meet again our dear ones.

Yes, Akhtar Sahib. The poem is for Vinny my childhood family friend. It was his father who passed away. Vinny wrote on his fb I have stopped watching the night sky, as destiny has taken away my brightest star. The poem is based on his words and is a humble tribute to him and his noble father(who I believe we shall all meet in the next life) .
