When the house is filled with silence And the air is the colour of evening

Hello Bright Star

When the house is filled with silence

And the air is the colour of evening

I take my chair to the window and watch

The world, the sky, the people

And I think of you.

There’s one stubborn star shining

Brighter than every other light and

It’s you, signalling me from your destination

Letting me know you’re safe with

Light, energy, magic.

My clock ticks unusually loud tonight

Keeping time with the symphony

The earth moving round cyclically, ever

Onwards, changing, leading us

Away from yesterday

But I carry you inside my veins

Timeless and with no need for fear

Sitting here I feel you so close and so far

Such a paradox but somehow

You’re everywhere.

I find myself musing dreamily,

Do the stars look different from up there

Do the Seasons touch you at all?

Or is everything constant, unaltered, known

No surprises?

And I find myself wondering restlessly

How many years lie ahead of me

How many nights until I’m with you again

Because I’m not sure I’ll make it,

It’s too long.

When the house is filled with silence

And the air is the colour of mourning

I take my chair to the window, and sit

And remember, and smile

And miss you.

Hello bright star...

Wish you were here...
