Slevin Starlight

September 2, 2014

You fade to starlight
And the years get lost in the ribble and rabble of every day and
I wonder,
When did you grow old?
Was I working, distracted, oblivious?
Was I caught up in the nothing when you started to fail?

Years so short to me,
So long to you,
And perhaps it’s best that I haven’t noticed,
That you kept your fatal secret,
That time crept silently upon us
Or my heart would have been years in the breaking.

You fade to starlight
As other, younger ones come along to grab at my heart
But never like you.
Never like you.

You are my starlight, fading.
