Morning Star

"Look, Daddy, look!"
"What is it baby?"
"A star Daddy. A star."
We knelt side by side on the couch gazing out the living room window.
"How far away is it," she asked?
"Far, far away."
"Farther than Neverland?"
"Neverland is in California," I said cynically. Luckily this went right over her head. "Its much farther away than Neverland. Its past the moon and past the sun and, gosh, just way out there."

We snuggled a little closer and she took my hand. We sat side by side sqeezing each others hands as the sky brightened, growing ever softer shades of blue, transissioning from indigo to pale in a seemingly endless moment.

"Can we go there, Daddy?"
"Someday baby. Someday."

And then the star was gone.
