Yes, you're right: Simply the best.
Every time we look up on a clear night, there they are. Outlasting us.
I learned that my mom was afraid of only one thing in life.
My mom's fear was that her kids would die before her.
I remember when I almost died when I was a kid. My mom and my doc saved my life. I called my mom at night from a hospital phone when I knew that I was seriously sick and dying in the hospital (before I lost my voice and couldn't talk).
I told mom that if she 'n my doc didn't make it on time -- that I would be a shining star in the sky with my best friend and we would be laughing together.
My mom and special doc came running to the hospital.
I remember watching the stars and moon outside my hospital window. I wasn't afraid of dying 'cause I knew that I would never be alone.
However, my tenacious mom and doc had other plans for me.
