Celestial Witness


Celestial Witness


They watch over us, blanketing the sky in light

Flickering as they smile and observe the adventures below.

Watching how we grow, develop and learn

Grandparents, mothers, fathers, siblings and children. 

Transformed from the earthbound to becoming an eternal flame. 

In our moments of need, times of sorrow and crisis,

In our moments of joy, achievements, happiness and love. 

Dying is not the end, it is just the beginning of an everlasting, boundless existence.

So when we say goodbye, it isn’t forever, just for the present. 

Looking up we feel the connection.

Until we meet again. 

I love you stars.
