By Dying Light

Velvet blanket,
Unfurling night.

A legacy ends,
Try as we might.

Dying star,
Light extinguished.

Rising star,
Life distinguished.

A child unborn,
On this rock alight.

Providence brought,
by meteorite.

Dying star,
Light distinguished.

Rising star,
Life extinguished.

One’s dreams realised,
Another’s in sight.

Who’s further along,
On this celestial flight?
