About the Poem

This poem speaks of life and death and how we must continue our lives after the death of a loved one .

For Heather

For years to come the stars will run
from blazing sun each day.
A Fable told, a Life grows cold,
and dreams are swept away.

Though we may fight throughout the night,
a distant Light may call,
like wooden mast and walls held fast,
one day at last we fall.

But fear not Sleep nor thoughts help deep,
a Pain we keep inside -
For dawn will wake and Day may break,
as life we take in stride.

This is a very good poem. It's not as sad as people are claiming, but it hits a certain string of the heart. Great with the capitalization as well-- it makes it all the more powerful
I give this poem an excellent rating. Beautiful prose, although sad. This poet will have success in writing.
I like this poem because a while back here in Scottsbluff we had lost a very special girl she was just so young and very bright my blessings go out to her family and friends. WE MISS YOU HEATHER ANN MAY SHE REST IN PEACE Always Nikki
I love your poem! When i read it I felt at peace. My brother died last October and those words mean so much to me. Thank You for sharing something so wonderful.
ITs great
very good sad poem
I can't believe no one's voted for this poem yet. It's so beautiful. Thank you Yoda's Ghost for sharing it.
This poem touched my heart...NOT because my name is also Heather, but because I have a close friend who passed away a few years ago, and it made me think of him. Many thanks to the author for letting me know that I'm not alone in my feelings of sadness whenever I think of him. It's comforting to know that there are other poeple out there who know what it's like.
