How can a light so shining be quenched so quickly and so darkly,

And in its fleeting course, still blaze across a legacy?

A brilliant flash forever etched in closed mind's eye;

Our Celestial-sent keepsake, flaming amidst black sky.

"Men and women who have lived wisely and well will shine brilliantly, like the cloudless, star-strewn night skies. And those who put others on the right path to life will glow like stars forever." Daniel 12:3
