I have often wonder be

I have often wonder be
When it is I shall leave
To adventure across mountains daring
Afraid you will stop caring.

Still I know this task of mine
To go on ahead of friends of old
So please be ready, prepare the wine.
For greetings warm are better than greetings cold.

Here I am leaving in but a while.
My bags are packed for that far off isle.
I pray we meet again before then.
But only God knows when.

Elysium that far country fair
Of grass so green and water sweet
‘Tis a place with no fresher air
May we before then once again meet?

I have often wonder be
When it is I shall leave?
Yet here it has now come at last
Still I’m afraid that you’ll forget me fast.

My Precious Little Star

For some reason I felt like writing poetry tonight, and here’s what came out.  You might enjoy it, who knows.

My Precious Little Star

O my starry heavens filled with light,
Where is my wish this night?
I’ll choose one star for my own,
And when I name you I’ll hold onto you.
For then you’ll be mine and mine alone,
Then I may have my one and only wish this night?

I am seeking my star again in this light,
but I cannot find her no not this time.
So if you run into my precious little star,
Tell her that I said hi and I miss her in the sky.
But if my star has no need of me at night,
Then perhaps she and I must find others at twilight.

O my starry heavens filled with light,
How are you tonight?
Surely you must be as cheerless as I,
For your most precious star has died.
But you have all those other stars in your sky,
But down here below, I am alone.
