The Fallen Star

No one knows where it happened 
and no one knows when or why,
the little, luminous silver star
came tumbling from the sky

Landing with a plunking sound
falling helplessly into the river,
this tiny piece of heaven on earth
became a gift without a giver

For it found itself upon the shore
along the waters of the stream,
and was discovered by a boy
who thought this was all a dream

Held within his small hand
the star pulsed with white light,
glowing with such brilliance
almost blocking out his sight

Kept secret and stashed away
where it could glow no more,
the star found itself among the dust
inside of an old wooden drawer

To him the star was a plaything 
to be treated like a favorite toy,
until one day it was forgotten 
by the man, no longer a little boy

Since no one ever told him
to wish upon a falling star,
and believe in the things unseen
his dreams never took him far

Had he been taught to wonder
just think what might have been,
still there is no way of changing 
what happened, now or then

The fallen star waits here still
in the drawer of his old nightstand, 
cornered there by a spider's web
to be found by a young dreamer's hand

And no one knows what happened 
and no one knows where or why,
to that little, luminous silver star
who came tumbling from the sky.

    How lovely, Kelly! I believe it is the duty of grownups to nurture the dreams of young ones, showing them that their dreams could come true were they to believe in themselves. Warm regards // paul

    Hi Kelly, this is such a wonderful write from your golden pen. Such a perfect write for us dreamers. Yif he had been taught to dream what wonders could have befallen him. I love the content. I found myself wishing he had taken the wish. This is such an excellent write Kelly. The imagery is so strong. A poor life waisted also. Maybe its magic is dead. A fave. Have a wonderful Monday. Hugs....Mike. XX
