Shooting Stars

Memories
        Shooting Stars
 
A life’s treasure pleasant memories
Snippets shared with friends and family
At lunch time at dinner time broad brush strokes
Told between bites of delectable food
 
Fantastical travel anecdotes
On seasons of joy and thanksgiving
Enjoyed over bazaar collectibles
Gourmet street food adventures lazy walks
Beach resort happy hours the boardwalks
Dawn to sunrise jogs twilight to dusk walks
With a loved one alone or with friends make
For a grand memory a joy to tell
 
You listen to whispers of intimate stories
From the lambent eyes of a lover your sweetheart
Kisses of sweet nothings and white lies at bedtime
Smiling sun rising you wake up deep breath taken
Close to heart you hold the tender loving last night
A sacred blissful remembrance for a lifetime
 
Yes we all had the good the bad times
As fate would have it bad memories
Find a way to naturally die
 
Let’s then fly away my love to our rendezvous
When we leave this world wonderful lifetime we had
Fly back to paradise where our eyes had first met
Relive the remembrances the dreams we fashioned
Come a new moon lie down we will on the meadow
Wishes we’ll make as shooting stars shower the sky

Looking forward to new memories, dreams coming true again, and the wishes made under a shower of shooting stars come back as divine gifts to cherish and share with loved ones and friends in the place we all will come home to - that magical heavenly meadow of peace, love, and harmony.

I made many wishes but never wuick enough before the shooting star vanishes into thin air. Maybe that’s why few of them cone true. But I haven’t lost faith yet.

@Vic: Try closing your eyes upon seeing a shooting star and make a wish. A hope, a prayer in effect you are making upon a shooting star -a messenger from Heaven inviting you to make a wish.

Seeing it, closing your eyes and making a wish-all you do. Not a guarantee the wish comes true but at least a prayer was made you feel hopeful.

Thanks Brod liking.
