Catch A Falling Star - Poem by David Harris

In the 1950’s Perry Como used to sing
about catching a falling star.
I caught mine many years ago
and at my side, she still is today.
The brightness never diminished
no matter how the years have been long,
nor has it silence, loves old sweet song.
Troubles we have had many
and more I am sure will come,
but we will get through them as we always do,
even through the years to come.
I guess love just happens that way,
and I will never say I am sorry
for ever feeling that way.
