Under Our Common Star

This is an updated version from a 2020 post.


So far away, 
Be safe, be well. We pray,
Sending hope to where you are,
Under your distant star.

It hurts, it aches, pain reverberates.
Can my heart bear this weight?
Yearning, stretching, oh so far,
To your distant star.

But space is deceiving, fools you believing
Separation and despair.
Spirit knows better, we link together
Under our common star.
     -----G. Hill
The Lord will be a refuge for the oppressed, a refuge in times of trouble.
       -----Psalms 9:9

Darkness Reveals the Light
I will love the light for it shows me the way, yet I will endure the darkness because it shows me the stars.
          – Og Mandino
