It may be pretty but
you should not fall in love with a shooting star
we burn much too bright
and we fall so very far.
You would do better
in looking for a bride
by marrying the moon
who is as consistent as the tide.
But if our burning effigy
is the only thing for you
please listen to me closely
and don’t say you never knew:
we are generous with our light
so love us if you must
but despite your best intentions
you may be left with dust.
The memory of departed warmth
will never pass you by
you’ll be reminded of our smile
in every evening sky.
