One Ill Never Know

There is One I’ll never know but someday maybe get to show the light within me shine. He’s like a star up in the sky burning bright and unreachably high, lighting this way of mine. He’s not the only One up there, there’s half a dozen just as fair, but this one stands apart, for being One who’s captive glow could make a spark inside me grow, to show the world my heart. Does this One I’ll never know realize the way he glows, seemingly just for me, has been the source of a guiding light in nights of poets quiet plights of Silent mystery? I’ll never shine as bright as he or be the star he’ll always be guiding us from blindness but the One I know I’ll never know I’ll someday maybe get to show reflections of his kindness. A simple thank you, Silent One, for inspiring travelers through the world of word. J Minor Jan 2020

I missed this poem, it is a beautiful dedication, that I was not aware of... I am speechless and not worthy of such praise.. Thank you
