Astro by Starlah

Is it really over Little Astro?
Seems that we’ve grown older
And time has beat us
Seems I’ve forgotten how to be
You took the better part of me
My heart my soul
My sweetest memory
You’re my identity.

Silence lines our hallway
Where laughter used to be
Empty house surrounds me
And echo’s our history.
I rack my brain to find a way
To bring us back to yesterday
My love my life
My childhood playmate
Still everything to me.

Looking out this window
Almost seeing
You run through the house
Only to jump into my arms
If I knew then what I know now
I would have changed
God’s mind somehow
My hopes my dreams
My own best friend
That’s what you are to me
My Little Astro.
