The Stars Are All I See

It has been an exceptionally painful year of more passings than I’ve known.
A reminder of that one Japanese song I love birthed a prose.

For those who have lost, grieve so you may find strength.
我は行く さらば昴よ!

I cannot grieve
For this sorrow in my heart
That no words can express

I cannot grieve
For I am dead to the world
Though the pain still lives

I cannot grieve
For I walk this path
That I must go alone

I cannot grieve
For though the skies are dark
The stars are all I see.
