Luminous--By Michael Griffith--United States

(For Sharon)

You are a star --
Shining in the darkness around you,
helping the true things in life show.

You are a star --
Glowing with a flame that will not die,
warming the hearts of those you know.

You are a star --
Shimmering like a magical gem,
giving hope wherever you go,

You are a star --
Rising on the horizon of life,
working hard to make your dreams grow.

Michael Griffith began writing poetry to help his mind and spirit heal as his body recovered from a life-changing injury. Recent work appears online and in print in such outlets as The Blue Nib, Nostalgia Digest, The Wild Word and Poetry24. He resides near Princeton, NJ.
