Ghosts of Distant Stars

In coldest dark there shines afar,

These ghosts of long dead distant stars,

Having lived their time in years,

In terms of billions, it appears,

Mighty suns as we can see,

Now all gone, light travels free,

Our minds attempt to grasp these truths,

Mere monkey brains, our race’s youth,

Not human spectres, something real,

Wraiths whose shine perhaps revealed,

Worlds with life, perhaps with minds,

So very different from our kind,

How many more of these there are,

These ghosts of long dead, distant stars.
