A Small Boy

From A 2nd Helping of Chicken Soup for the Soul

A Small Boy

A small boy
Looked at a star
And began to weep.
And
The star said
Boy
Why are you weeping?
And
The boy said
You are so far away
I will never be able
To touch you
And
The star answered
Boy
If I were not already
In your heart
You would not be able
To see me.
