Shattered Stars -

I was telling Jane this morning how much I love the Hubble Space Craft Advent Calendar and when she looked at it, she was reminded of this poem by Gary Young.

When your children ask, will you always love me, say you will love them
forever, and then tell them what forever means. You can explain the
heavens if they ask, and tell them, your bodies are made from the
dust of shattered stars. But when they ask you, will I ever die , then lie to
them. They’re still young, and it might frighten them if you said no.

- Gary Young
