Tears

A lonely man
at the end of his life
gazes at the stars
one last time
He spills tears
as his heart
winds down
tears of joy
for all he has felt
tears of fear
for the journey ahead
into the unknown
tears of regret
for what he could
have done better
tears of acceptance
for what he did
was enough
As death flew
to greet him
on wings of fire
under a glittering sky
the man turned to face
Heaven’s pale angel
into the sky he rose
with death
through the stars
and the flaming gas
that could no longer
hurt him
beyond the sun
to a lifeless star
his soul was returned
To reignite a shine
to restore luster
and burn once again
