Ode to a Star

I love you stars.

You are a part of my day.

Inside my body

You twinkle and play.

Outside at night

You shine so bright.

I smile at the sky

And watch you pass by.

Slowly you move

Or I guess I do, too.

I ponder the Mystery

When I look at you.

Thank you for gracing

My life with your shine.

You inspire my joy

When love’s hard to find.

There’s always a star

Up high and in me.

As long as I chase it

I always feel free.

And then the star

And then the star

turned out its light

fell down to earth

whilst burning bright

born as a child

to a willing mom

who dreamed a dream

the star came from.
