Brian’s Comet

By , Temperance, MI
Once upon a shooting star
All your problems shall disappear
Whether gone from Earth or near
You won’t be very far

Like the pain of a loved one aching
Or the cries of a caged bird
The most wounding sound I have ever heard
Was the sound of your heart breaking

So from now on when I see a star, shooting across the sky
When it flashes across the horizon, I will say,
“What a brave thing to do, a price you didn’t have to pay.”
Then my pretenses will fade away and I will finally cry.
Then I might learn of half of the pain the heart feels when one dies.

This is a simply fantastic piece of work. It's filled with so much emotion. I dont know if you intended it to be so effective, but it was. Fantastic! Could you  maybe look at some of my work, i think you may enjoy it...
