REVELATION


When I was little, I asked Mother,

“What’s that funny little star?”

And she said, “It’s an asterisk, Dear.”

“Oh,” I said.

Then, she added, “an asterisk explains

something you cannot understand —

you’ll learn more about it, someday.”

But my school years passed,

leaving me with more question marks

than asterisks.

Now, I am a mother.

I know all about that “funny little star”

for I live with it every day.

Today, my son asked

“What’s that funny little star?”

And I answered, “Others call them asterisks,

but I call them ‘Hope’.”

“Oh,” said my son.

Someday, he’ll know.
