How I Wonder by Shannon Baxter

what life do we set to each setting star
falling from heavens to wander afar
across ancient ocean and desolate sky
forever a beacon, forever a lie
forever an object of awe and amaze
forever a shade in a galactical blaze
forever a diamond on indigo plain
I wonder what is it, I call you again?
Was it a message, a sign or an omen?
To take me away or send me back home when
all other lights will flicker away
and only by you do I find the day
what is the life held by each passing star?
Wandering the heavens, we wonder afar
