She reached up to the sky
with salty tears in her eyes
and pulled a star from where it did lie
as she kissed the heavens goodbye.
She watched the sky turn gray
devoid of the stars that once did play
now sadly she gazed
up at the world no longer ablaze.
She turned over and shut her eyes
let herself drift into the night
where dreams of glimmering light
could still be with her, in her sight.
