I loved this poem. It gave my sister another chance at life. She was about to commit suicide when I started to say the poem she held off for a minute, giving me time to grab the knife. Thank you so much Rose for making this poem.

Shooting Star

You are a shooting star in the midnight sky.
The glimmer of the whole sky, but only for a moment.

You dream, you think, you wait for the right time, then you,
a single star go into the night sky for the world to see.

As you travel across the sky, you leave the hint of your presence behind.
You are the shooting star in the eye of the world.
