In Time we are Stars

The light shines upon the lake
It shimmers on the ripples
There is peace afloat the ether

The ripples spread out from their source
A boulder protruding from the shallow bed
It is patient in its watching of time

Time, what is time but ripples on the lake of existence
It passes with but a whisper on through the centuries
Gone before we have a chance to linger

Though fleeting our time may be
Our existence is bright and worthy of the light
The immortal light of the Universe

We may be but an intense flash in time
But do we not leave an after image
On the retina of the Universe?

We may pass, but we shall forever be
As we recombine in the afterlife
To be the stuff of Stars

So from Star dust we became
And in the end to Star Dust we return
The Stuff of Stars, we are eternal
