Watching From Above, an original poem

Updated on July 17, 2010

Shimmering stars blanketed the heavens

Shining over a girl, not yet seven

She left tiny footprints in the sand

Though invisible under night’s hand

Her white dress fluttered in the breeze

She was an angel, pure, yet naïve

Her fingers clenched, unclenched as she crept

Her long curls danced softly with each step

The moonlight glimmered on her face

And in the air, sadness she could taste

Her lips trembled as her heart cried out

Two wide, chocolate eyes glazing with doubt

Stars twinkled above till forever

As she scanned the skies now or never

A single tear fell beneath her lashes

Weaving dark streaks, the color of ashes

Then, a sudden calm fell upon the night

And from the dark hills, shone dawn’s morning light

Amongst the stars a mother smiled

As hope grew and blossomed in her child
