The star that streaked the sky

When you need a talk
Or just a hug.
But a hundred of them
Wouldn’t stop your mind tug
At that tiny piece of subconscious
Saying. You need it from only one person
That you can ever think of.
Hey , are you from a shooting star ?

When you try to think straight.
But your vision foggy.
Your motivation’s sucked out
Your dreams become naught
Have you ever thought of someone.
Who can make you hope.
And lend you the strength to dream again.
Hey , are you from a shooting star ?

Have you ever been so broken.
And no one bothered to ask if you’re okay.
And you can barely crawl back from grief
And keep all that pain at bay.
Did you feel a reassuring hand on your shoulder
With the kindest whispers in your ear
Stitching up your mental scars.
And making you realise your worth again.
Hey , are you from a shooting star ?

When you near the reaper
And you can see his scythe.
And all your memoirs flash before your eyes
Saving for last the Blythe
And then at the very last picture just after the family you love.
Is their picture. The sole lifeline.
That kept you going all this while.
Hey , are you from a shooting star ?

And then it hits you how unnoticed they are
How nobody ever knew what they did.
And their proud undeservingly unsung story.
And how till your last breath you have done absolutely nothing
To remedy that situation.
And put them on pedestals in front of the world.
The bravest of heroes. The wisest of Thinkers.
The strongest of companions. The best of relations.
Oh. How you never could put them to the world.
How their feathers are too bright to be caged in even a single memory.
Hey , are you from a shooting star ?
Hey , were you from a shooting star ?
Cause your streak still shines against the night sky.
And the beautiful scar is forever.

Closure.
