One in a Billion

a billion stars in the sky

then one special one came by

dancing delightfully singing its song

nothing possibly could go wrong

the star found its way into my heart

and of myself, I gave all parts

together the love lit my day

together the love inspired my way

how different each moment was then

how joyful and easy my time did spend

all seemed possible in the light

all was beautiful till that night

now that the love has gone

no joy or smile is left in my song

how do I return to what I once had

it is gone forever,  increasingly sad

gathering the pieces is no easy path

fragments of love drowned in a grief bath

weeping, I step through the day

weeping…with only emptiness to pay

    The way we start the day with hopefulness can dwindle as the day faces obstacles and hurdles coming to the end of day. Where we feel like we didn’t accomplish all we expected and we are bereft to lose the day. It could be about life, love or simply a day which passed us by. Great poem and so many ways to view it. Almost, Jane, like “Art is in the eye of the beholder.” 🙂
