Two Stars

With a heart that was open but eyes that were closed,

She found a safe place and within she dozed.

In her sleep, she saw a star way up high.

And she listened as it sung a soulful lullaby.

“I feel your sobbing heart through the soles of my feet,

But I pray the day is prolonged until finally we meet.

Your body I caress through my spirit and soul,

But no wish nor desire can make my own body whole.”

Deeper she fell, but the dream didn’t fade,

Not matter how much she tried, in her heart it still laid.

Trying to forget, praying for release

She sang in silence in search of that peace.

“I feel your heart and I feel your pain,

I imagined that at my side you’d always remain.

But death took you, leaving me here,

With the doubts that surround me, filling me with fear.”

The star returned, now lower in the sky,

A tear she saw as it began to cry.

She wiped that tear with a lock of her hair,

Placed it in her heart and left it there.

The tear was returned when his hand touched her own,

As she made her way skyward no longer alone.

The lovers became one when her life slipped away,

Now in heaven, together, two stars now lay!

About Daniel Kemp

Daniel Kemp, ex-London police officer, mini-cab business owner, pub tenant and licensed London taxi driver never planned to be a writer, but after his first novel —The Desolate Garden — was under a paid option to become a $30 million film for five years until distribution became an insurmountable problem for the production company what else could he do? Nowadays he is a prolific storyteller, and although it’s true to say that he mainly concentrates on what he knows most about; murders laced by the intrigue involving spies, his diverse experience of life shows in the short stories he compiles both for adults and children. He is the recipient of rave reviews from a prestigious Manhattan publication, been described as —the new Graham Green — by a managerial employee of Waterstones Books, for whom he did a countrywide tour of signing events, and he has appeared on ‘live' television.
