Reflection in my Heart


The moon shines  bright 

The stars reflect  on me

I sit here by myself

As quiet as can be.
I see my father’s smile 

I see my mother’s tears 

I see my brother’s illness 

Now  passed away three years.
I tossed a pebble smoothly 

And hear the sound it makes 

Then quiet followed soon after 

And I know that I must take.
The new path of living daily

Without you in my day

The stars whisper, “Have no fear

I’ll help guide you on your way”.
Written by my feelings,
