Daily Prompt – Twinkle
My Brightest Stars!
When I saw the prompt was twinkle, I knew I had to participate. I have unfortunately lost both my parents and miss them terribly. Whenever I look up to the sky I look for the brightest stars and remember my parents.
No matter how old we are there is always a time when we are still that young child reliant on our Mum. There has been much time recently I have really needed to have a ‘chat’ and to know that they are proud of me.
This is written for them xx
Twinkling lights, in the sky,
How I watch you while I lie.
In my dreams, I see my Mum,
Her very quick death did really stun!
She is missed, by all of us
She would say don’t make a fuss
‘I can see you, from the sky’
‘Talk to me, please don’t cry’
‘We see you live your lives by day’
‘We see you also, at night pray’
‘Wipe your sadness away my child,’
‘Today I saw my grandchild smile’
We had no time to say goodbye
For that I give, a very sad sigh
I want you to know, I miss you every day
I wish I didn’t have to stay
‘I’m here with Dad, reunited again’
‘Living together without our pain’
‘We see your children grow and learn’
‘To hold them truly, we do yearn’
‘We’re proud of you, our youngest child’
‘We see you when you smile’
‘Be happy around your children always’
‘Those wonderful children you do raise’
I love you both, Mum and Dad!
I promise not to be sad!
‘One day we will be together’
‘But for now, we send love forever!’
