Embraced sky

Each evening I look up at the stars,
the giant blue garden of heaven.
I embrace the sky,
it isn’t that far.
That flashy sparkling golden star,
with ruby nuance, that pebble,
in the necklace so high
up there, I know, I feel it,
this must be you, papa, you are winking at me from heaven.
