A Star by Lydia Ehmcke
In the writing group we were shown some objects, had to choose one and write about it in a set time of 5 minutes. This is my story.
Up in the sky at night I saw a beautiful star. It sparkled and looked as if it wanted to give me a message. One of my dear departed probably wants to tell me something. We used to look at those stars together and often marvelled at how beautiful they really were, but oh, so far away.
Nevertheless, we can see them on a clear night and enjoy their existence. Some of them might not be alive any more and we can still see them and enjoy them. Just so it is with our loved ones who departed, they still sparkle and give us pleasant memories.
