distant star [poem]

I like to think myself the night sky
all darkness and depth
but in truth
I’m more distant star than the space around it
there’s a bright sweetness to the light I give
a warmth that cradles life
sustaining the growing things
I’d like to claim I’m the night and its silence
but I’ve already shone with sunrise in my smile
