THE SOFT LITTLE STAR

Once upon a night, on a night much like tonight, many, many years ago a little boy found a star! The star was as warm and soft as a kitten and only a little bigger…

And the little boy took the soft, little star home – and every night the star would softly glow and curl up on the little boy’s bed to sleep.

And the little boy loved the soft, little star. And the soft, little star loved the little boy.

And every day the soft, little star would wake – and seemingly disappear! But every night the soft, little star returned, again and again, just as warm and soft and bright as ever!

And the little boy loved the soft, little star. And the soft, little star loved the little boy.

And every night the little boy would gently hold the star and whisper, “You’re just a little kitten to me.”

And the soft, little star would purr and softly glow!

*

And the little boy loved the soft, little star. And the soft, little star loved the little boy.

And even when the little boy – wasn’t little anymore; but all grown up –  and a man; still every night the soft, little star reappeared; and the star was still as warm and soft as a kitten  – and only just a little bigger – just about the size of a cat. And the man would gently hold the star and whisper, “You’re still just a little kitten to me.”

And the soft, little star would purr and softly glow!

*

And the man loved the soft, little star. And the soft, little star loved the man.

*

And so it was the man and the soft, little star lived happily for many, many years.

And many, many days and nights passed…

*

And when at last, when the man was at last, a little old man; still every night the soft, little star reappeared; and though the soft, little star was as warm and soft as ever – somehow it seemed more and more – like a little old cat.

But the little old man would still gently hold the star – and just as ever the old man would whisper, “You’re still just a little kitten to me.”

And the soft, little star would purr and softly glow!

*

And then one night, on a night much like tonight, the little old man and the soft, little star curled up together on their bed to go to sleep, and just as the little star began to softly glow – so too, the little old man began to softly glow!

*  *

And together, the little old man and the soft, little star –  drifted up from their bed and out through the window, and up they went – up to the sky, together!

And there they joined all the other stars…to shine, HAPPILY forever and ever!
