Trusting life

Things I know to be true about life:
Nothing in life happens by chance.
Life is a series of beginnings and endings.
Nothing is permanent.
If you hold the things you love too tightly,
it will become a deep source of pain.
If you aren't willing to change and grow,
life will eventually bring you to your knees in surrender.
As a bright little star fell from the sky,

a little girl ran barefoot across the earth

to catch it before it hit the ground.

The beautiful star glowed in her arms,

inviting her to bring it closer

to her little heart.

She grew to dearly love the little star,

but there came a day when she knew

she must return it to the sky.

It took great courage to say goodbye.

Nowadays when the moon is full

and stars are twinkling,

she longing looks to the sky

searching for the star

that shines the brightest,

for she knows this was once her star

and in some mysterious way,

always will be.
