A Tribute to a Star

On you the angels did bestow
a glow your friends would come to know
as star-shine!

For even stars cannot outshine
your countenance. It's as divine
as starlight.

Oh, how you hush those stars, my dear,
from brightly shining when you're near;
they're star-struck.

I too am stricken by your sight.
I'd love to be with you all night
to star-gaze.

Shine on, sweet man, but do not burn
too long or strongly; stars might turn
to stardust!

Dedication to a special person!

Thanks so very much. This was for a fellow poet who was here a short while and really was a shining star. Then Poof! He disappears.

Andrea, back to read this beauty again, a lovely tribute to your friend, I wonder where he is? Do I dare say 7, oh what to heck, A BIG FAT SEVEN and thanks for visiting my poem, I ran . . . my dad was such a unique character, always doing silly and wonderfully funny things, oh the stories told at his funeral had us in stitches, it seems he was like that all his life, in all circumstances, oh I was shattered inside, weeping while laughing
