lodestar

Lodestar, won’t you show me your light

illuminate these darkened days that

slowly ebb to moonless nights

 

I’ve scanned the sky, bleary-eyed

till the sun came up, searching for

your telltale shine, but I’ve had no luck

 

And though the firmament rightly glow’d

with myriad others—lesser stars—

not a one approached your brilliance

that steady glare, your white-hot spark

 

Lodestar, won’t you give me a sign

just a wink to show you’re there

across this vastitude of time

 

You steered me before, unerring

and true, from my nadir to zenith

across an apogee or two

 

But my fixture’s gone—blinked out, I’m afraid—

or perhaps caught up in star-stuff

some trillions of light years away

 

Lodestar, won’t you show me your light

there’s something missing from my sky and

I want you to make it right
