Stardust - Poem by Martin Strain

Do not mourn me,
I am stardust.
I am the universe and, the universe is me.
I am the sand between your toes,
The sun on your face.
I am the tree that gives you shade,
The stars that light your way.
I am the hope in your heart and, the smile on your face.
Do not mourn me,

I am not gone.

    Good Poem. Reminds one of Dylan Thomas: Do Not Go Gentel into That Good Night.
    Written to his father. Enjoyable.
