More

I came to you not knowing
there was more to this life
than just surviving it.

The Stars

Do you also look up
at the stars, dear friend,
and wonder?

—–

What can we do
but live
and make what short time
we have
lasting and bright.

—–

Maybe the stars look down on us
and wonder, too.

Poem by Jessica Grace Sparks

Goodnight

It’s the nights when you leave
too soon—
before my body aches
and I feel sleep overcome me—
that I am surrounded by the reality
of having to exist without you.
