star seed, your comet light too dazzling to snuff out by one deed
why your spirit won’t let me be?
by day your name.. whispers… touches me through the crisp winter breeze
daring forgetfulness to thaw its chill
at night your powerful glow blinds the haunting darkness with hope of your radiant tomorrow.
walk boldly through your valley in the shadow of death
with the Most High forever in the lead; your ancestors cloaked around you
do you see them? hear them?…
you, suspended between here and there
we, who with bated breath wait, wrapped in agony of your today,
hold firm to the promise of your many moons to come
inspiring us to personal greatness
in the shadow of your brilliance.
