Oh, Star Boy,
I miss you.
You use to call me “dearling,”
And laugh softly,
As you said,
“Endless space and oblivion are the only fears I have.”
But oh Star Boy,
You don’t seem to understand,
That there is so much more to this world,
Then the simple fears you had.
My fears anchored me to this earth,
While you went bounding about in the stars,
And so I hope when someone meets you next,
You say while smiling softly,
“I fear oblivion, endless space and losing people.”
Because by golly you lost me,
Up in the galaxies.
