The Brightest Star
By Melissa, age 15, New YorkWe meet, you greet,
The smile shines upon your face,
So generous, so sweet,
Your beautiful being glows with such grace,
You are a bright star glistening in the night sky,
You're a dazzling light
I can't just move on or say goodbye,
My God, you are so bright,
I know you don't want us to cry,
I know you hate to see us like this,
But you are the brightest star in my night sky,
Lyla, it is you I will forever miss.
Dedicated to my dear friend Lyla, I love you and I miss you. Have a good night.
