poetry by j matthew waters

wishing upon a falling star

I’ve told this story so many times
though hesitant to put in writing
at least not until your passing

you’ve never felt my pain
having given up on some purpose
at least since I was born

there are no torches passing
no lives flashing before your eyes
only stars slowly dying

I know you’ve seen them falling
faster than a blink of an eye
and I wonder when I’ll write again

november two thousand nineteen
