What do bubbles know of the shining stars?

What do bubbles know of the shining stars?

The whole wide sky they both reside in,

And though the distance between them is far

The bubble still floats upward with chagrin

Longing consumes the bubble’s thoughts

For an eternal niche in the sparkling universe

Not left to roam as an invisible dot

Defined by its lonesome wandering curse

The curse which makes the fragile bubble pop

When touched by any curious being

Yet the bubble doesn’t want it to leave or stop

It’s own shining companions fleeing

But if a bubble truly knew the life of a distant star,

They would understand how akin bubbles and stars really are.
