Zelda today posted the poem: "You - you alone will have the stars as no one else has them... In one of the stars I shall be living. In one of them I shall be laughing. And so it will be as if all the stars were laughing, when you look at the sky at night ... You - only you - will have stars that can laugh," she qouted Saint-Exupery before adding, "I love you. I miss you. I'll try to keep looking up."
