'Distant Star'

You want to fade away?
Want to be that distant star
That brings about perplexity

It’s not who you are
You were never intended to be
Just a distant star
Your light shines through
Without you knowing

Those around you feel your warmth
Others see it, 
Others wonder; in amazement 
What creates the radiance? 

The vivacity, 
Your natural glow
Like a second skin –

You encompass 
Without drowning those around you 

Adequate provision to make them feel
The wealth of being treasured 
Without losing their identity

Fading away is impossible 

You shine without being overbearing 
Just enough to make everyone feel loved

    Wilma, this is outstanding! When someone's aura shines brightly, others can feel it, be effected by it and some can even see it.

    In a way this reminds me of the poem written by John Keats "Bright Star Would I Were Steadfast As Thou Art". Great poem

    I think that your light shines bright, so bright dear Missy Woke, I can't resist- 'shine bright like a diamond!', and you writing this Very moving poem reflects your own radiance and big heart. I just bet that the person who inspired this got all teary and got their hearts full when they read this! Such a touching gift this is! I think you yourself have a radiant glow, inside and out and blessed are we who get embraced by it. Allow me to thank you from my heart for being such a wonderful and caring friend, God bless you and mwahugs <3! I Love this poem! Maybe that distant star is not so distant after all, but so much closer... This truly made me wonder and ponder, in a good way- twinkle twinkle little star...
