This is a small tribute to my father,whom I loved so much...


What the Star Says


There is an evening star that twinkles,

which winks at me in a graceful starry circle,


I think of the star as my loving father

watching over me from his heavenly tower


The star still twinkles, thankfully not going away

It gives me a strange joy with my heart beating away


I ask for courage, I ask to be brave

to face the world without his wisdom so grave.


It seems to say to me to follow my heart,

where-ever it goes go with a spring in step


Don't live your life only for yourself

You are here for a definite purpose,


You are remembered not for your wealth

but the deeds you do that are golden in worth.


It awakens in me a feeling of brotherhood,

a feeling of joy to remain in all likelihood!
