fallen star

A star falls out of orbit, it seems
broken, crushed and saddened.
The word carries far and wide.

The world stops to watch as it
shoots across the dark sky
They watch, happy at the sight.

Every word, every whisper
works to bring it down faster
yet the talk, the laughter continues.

When once the tiny star
has crashed into the wide open field
The light disappears, it is seen no more.

The fire that once kept
My dear star alight
Now is no more.

Forgotten and powerless
in the quiet of the field
There seems to be no one looking.

Lonely unlit star soon sees,
No one caught her, no one came.
All eagerly watched her crash.

They all made a wish.
Would they have wished
For the never ending light of
My sweet forgotten star.
