Bright Star

Physics was never my strong point,
String theories and relativity confused my brain
Looking into the sky at night my heart understood
ideas beyond my mind's ability to grasp
Somehow, gazing at the Milky Way in the darkness
Helps the universe make sense in my soul
Perhaps the light started a million years ago
just now, reaching my eyes.
But what I KNOW, is here, today, in this moment
The light has reached my heart.
Bright Star has taken her place in the heavens,
Shine me home, when my time has come.
