The Starlight Beckons (Poetry)

leafless trees under starry night sky

Oh, sweet babe with the bluest eyes
Borne to me, a gorgeous surprise
When I saw you first, my heart stopped
My lungs so full, they almost popped

Right from the start, you began to rise
You look up to the skies, mesmerized
The starlight beckons you to the highest skies
I could tell you heard the angels’ cries

I left you all too soon, I’m afraid
For where you came from was forbade
You were the last thing I ever saw
You took my last breaths with you, Luna Dawn
