Once you were

A tribute to my brother David who died shortly after he was born. 

a special piece

of me

left with you

on your journey

to stars.

by night

i see that star

i feel it’s radiance,

i catch it

with my dreams,

i become translucent

for a while,

in the darkness

all around me

you hold my

heart

in your celestial hands,

as if i never

had had to say,

once you were.
