Like A Star In Mornings Light Poem by Concetta Salter

Like A Star In Mornings Light

Rating: 5.0

I wake up bright and early.
I walk outside and look.
I look up, up into the sky.
A star shines bright. My eyes are hooked.

The sun is almost full in view.
But still that star shines bright.
It makes me start to think of you;
That star up in the sky.

Soon enough the star will fade;
It’ll have to bid farewell;
You yourself have done the same;
I know that all too well.

You struggled not to say goodbye.
You fought it all you could.
But like a star in suns bright light,
I knew for sure you would.

It hurts sometimes to be so right.
To watch as some things fade;
To wipe the tears I’ve cried and cried;
To know you’d drift away.

Dimming every day, our love.
It dimmed before my eyes.
Once more I cast my eyes above.
The star now vanished from the sky.

The other morning when I was taking my brother to work at 7: 00 AM, I looked up at the sky, where the sun was beginning to come into view. Near to the rising sun remained but one shining star. It was such a beautiful star and I felt sorry for it. While yes the sun is just as beautiful in it’s own right, I couldn’t help but feel pity for that little star. Because it was fighting so hard to stay in the sky. And while I knew that it would lose in the battle of night verses day, it fought. It fought with all it’s might. Willing to give it’s own life, which it did, to remain in that vast sky. That night I was listening to depressing Taylor Swift songs and came up with this idea for a poem. I give to you now what one star and a handful of Taylor Swift break up songs inspired. My latest poem titled “Like A Star In Mornings Light”.
