    Immortal Star

    In the twinkling twilight glitter that reflects from off your car
    are the glints from ‘cross a billion miles of far off distant stars.
    Your learned say we stars have died and yet our light still keeps
    to race across the gaps of galaxies light years love to leap.

    When we explode, blasting forth the elements in our light,
    we feed the newborn stars in stellar cribs who nurse thru night
    on gold and silver, nickel and copper, mercury, carbon and zinc
    to grow an Earth that grew a man who’s now our future link.

    Most million years we lived and laughed to dance galactic Space
    as orbs of light which in your eyes were blinks of spectral grace
    and as we dim to be no more, our light stays pure and just
    when in the mirror you reflect the stardust made of us.

    From death comes life, a natural law that governs even stars
    who send light ‘cross a billion miles to land upon your car
    and tell you true that you are Man, a legacy made of we
    who waited for you to carry within our immortality.

    Love the feel of this one...especially the following stanza:

    those were million dollar words, Mr. Hyman. Thanks for sharing them.
