A shining star
glitters from afar
a distant midnight sun
a million constellations whirl
all disappear but one
Years swirl by
as time unfurls
but distant still you gleam
I wish I could collect the dust
of generations in between

I like the rhythm in this poem, and the thoughts about it afterwards. I have a 'hero' from an older generation, and although they may be long gone, it's funny how they are still thought of, still, as you put it, idolized. And this poem...I see what you mean. :)

Brilliant. I loved how you brought a different meaning after you wrote it, but to me it was just about stars. Still, both meanings apply, and I like yours better.
