When a sun suddenly burns out

When a sun suddenly burns out


What happens when a sun suddenly burns out?

Without warning or remnant

Left, a space that once held a brilliant star


How do you replace her comforting warmth?

That once bathed your skin in love

Breathing life into your body


Will you again find such a powerful brightness?

Her light that shone right through you

And illuminated your soul


What will become of you without her brilliance?

That seeded and grew in your mind

Filling you with zest and possibility


Can you ever replace her familiar presence?

Making you always feel at home

In peace and serenity


How do you fill a void so vast and empty?

That once held her bountiful life’s energy

Giving meaning and purpose


And will you ever see your star’s like again?

Or just travel far through the universe

In search of her glimmer of hope
