My Star


Diamond of my youth, bright like a star, I imagine sometimes where you are . . .  You may well be, as always I assume, far - so very far - away from me, but for all I know, you could also be like those mountains nearby me that loom. In my mind, you loom. But what if it's the tomb where I might find you ultimately? I can't bear to think of you, Darling, in the tomb or beneath the hard dark ground better it will be to think of you as my star burning ever brightly on May 3, 2017 for 'Best romantic write May-July 2017' Poetry Contest of John Hamilton (sorry not free verse; it's all I had for romantic category in that time period)

Hi Andrea, i do have to agree with Sneha, you do write so beautifully in so many different forms. You write from the heart Andrea and your words therefore touch the heart and stir the readers emotions. You play the heart by playing the strings your words create. This is a gem of a write, a song sung so gently. It seems congratulations are due Andrea on your win in this contest. My belated congratulations. You are one of the brightest stars Andrea. A 7 and a fave. Hugs....Mike. XX
