My bright shining star

All of Kaitlyn’s life I called her my bright shining star….and often. I wrote this for her after she died.

My Bright Shining Star

I saw a bright shining star blazing across the sky,
I thought I would keep it and try to make it mine.
The star brightened the terrible darkness that was all around,
Making the bleakness of the sky very hard to be found.

I saw a bright shining star blazing across the sky,
Never had I seen one that shown so high.
It gave off its rays of happiness to all that could see,
And lightened up their world as it did for me.

I saw a bright shining star blazing across the sky,
So proud I was that I could say it was mine.
But what I didn’t know is that it quickly gave out its own light
Until it no longer had its own and blazed out of sight.

I saw a bright shining star blazing across the sky,
I thought I could keep it and try to make it mine,
But what I didn’t know is that this star so fine,
But was a gift for only a short time.

About gatito2

My name is Rhonda. I'm a registered nurse, for the last 20 years, that has not been able to work since the day I learned of my daughter's death by suicide 4-12-13. (She actually died 4-11-13 and her body was not found until the 12th) Me and my husband have been married for 32 years and he's a wonderful man. We grieve in different ways. He works, I write. This is my journey through this horrible land of losing a child..
