Starfish


One more star tonight . . . the song has been running through my mind all day--reminding me I'm not alone and my friend is still out there. I found a starfish on the beach last month. I knew it wasn't going to make it because he was so far from the water's edge. Sorry little guy, but I wanted to take him home to remind me of my beautiful week at the shore. I carefully picked him up and walked along the waters edge. Sadly, slowly, his little arms began to curl and turn grayish--the life was leaving him. I just couldn't do it. I laid him gently down but I knew it was too late. I watched until the waves took him back home . . . one less star tonight
