Rising Star

Had time not been cruel 
I’d hitch my rig to your rising star 
As you follow your dream. 
How high you might soar 
In the milky blue skyway 
To taste the adrenaline 
Of each starlight beam.

This is your time to 
Brighten the heavens, 
To dance among millions and 
Try to outshine 
Every shimmering sun 
Spreading light to her planets 
While sipping the nectar 
Of sparkling wine.

Nothing can tether 
Your high-flying spirit. 
Grace is your partner 
In this silent run. 
I’ll stand in your shadow, 
Bask in your glory. 
My time has passed. 
Yours has only begun.
