OUR BRIGHT MORNING STAR

As it’s Valentine’s today, I thought I’d share a piece I wrote for my wife on our Anniversary. We are both living with my Parkinson’s and the threat of her Cancer returning. The bright morning star is Venus, which in mythology represents love. It also shines the brightest.

 

OUR BRIGHT MORNING STAR

FOR MY WIFE ON OUR ANNIVERSARY

When chance mercy, grants serenity and unfetters all mental chains,

reason no longer sought,my mind so stilled that nothing now remains,

til’ you are my only thought.

For in these moments, when solemn stillness marries the half-light’s shade,

I often watch you sleep, whispering thanks that such beauty was ever made,

that you are mine to keep.

And in my heart I know, that few will ever know a love such as ours,

a love cruel fate cannot mar, that even in life’s dark, dreadful hours

shines bright our morning star.
