You were crafted in the stars,
And given a luminescent glow,
But even if I love you,
I can’t join you in the stars you know.
While you were crafted out of stardust,
And figments of the moon,
I was crafted out of earth,
And of friendship ended too soon.
Star boy I am an earthling,
As mortal as can be,
So while you are drifting with meteors,
Please remember me.
I know I might not be born on Saturn,
Or a distant star,
But please believe that I can’t return.
The lack of oxygen is crushing my heart,
And homesickness is curling up in my ribcage,
But know that I will think of you while we are apart.
I’m sorry star boy,
That I couldn’t stay forever in the stars,
So remember me,
While walking over Mars.
You were a universal thing,
And I was trapped in the atmosphere,
So the best I can do is to ask you,
Not to forget me while I’m here.
Maybe one day I’ll join you,
In the indigo sea,
But until that day,
Remember me in the billions of galaxies.
