What the Stars See


The stars

seem so far away


and the Aurora Borealis

slow to come.


Thinking about

all I’ve done.

How I ended up

right here.


It’s hard to think

about all that had to happen

in the universe,

for us to come this far,

and then I wonder

how I ever felt close to the stars.


In the darkness,

fading sky.

I wonder if I can

make it right?

So much has gone on

on this side,

I wonder what the stars see

through their eyes.
