I Wrote Your Name in the Stars

A Conversation

I wrote your name in the stars last night.

I smiled, and waved hello.

I cried until my heart felt right.

I dried your tears with love.


I heard your voice in the robins’ song.

My message, heaven sent.

With mournful thoughts, I sang along.

Sing of joy, not of lament.


I felt your touch on the floral breeze.

The lilac scent, your fave.

I trimmed some petals from the trees.

You placed them on my grave.


I saw an angel in the clouds.

She’s there for your release.

I saw her smiling through her shroud.

We don’t want you to grieve.


I wish that I could hold you close.

You’ll feel me in sunbeams.

When I rest my head, I miss you most.

I’ll be there in your dreams.


I wrote your name in the stars last night.

I hung the crescent moon.

I pray we’ll meet again one day.

I pray it won’t be soon.

    Well-wrought! This was masterfully done. Wistfully sad but hopeful. A loved one would not want us to long too soon for the other side, knowing that we'll meet soon enough, and perhaps again and again. I shared this one to my facebook page. I hope it gets a few more readers your way!
