There is a new Star Shining in the Sky Tonight...
There is an old belief that the stars shining in the night sky are the spirits of those who have died. They have shed their earthly bodies and exchanged them for bodies made of light; thousands upon thousands of our dear departed friends all promoted to glory in the night sky!
There is another saying that the brightest flame burns the shortest. Rhianna, you were the brightest star in my universe. While I burn on, my flame dimmed by grief and despair at your passing, the stars are watching me. They are too far away for me to touch, just as you have gone somewhere I cannot follow until my own star~time comes. The stars cannot be held for comfort, just as I can no longer hold you close, though I held you close to comfort you in your final hours.
We were together for such a short time, but the stars will burn on forever. One day my own time will come, and my spirit will soar into the sky to burn with all those loved ones who have gone before me. On the inky cloth of space you and I will be reunited in the constellations. Until then, my flame burns low and dim without you, and through my tears I look toward the heavens and what do I see...
A new star shining down on me.
