The moon shines in the sky so bright
as I sit in this sacred place,
My head looks up to the stars on this night
they spill their light on my solemn face.
Sadness takes over from the depths of my soul
as I look at the sky above,
For in that sky, so dark and so big
lie the beautiful stars that I love.
I reach so far with all that I have
to catch a star so bright,
Despite my efforts I can never reach it
I will never touch its beautiful light.
Once again, I will settle for
simply gazing at my hearts desire,
But when the night is gone and time is up
my tears will burn like fire.
I can not tell the stars of my pain
my secret will always burn my soul,
If I tell them what I think,
they will shy away and hide their magnificent glow.
Still gazing up through watery eyes
I blink away a heavy tear,
I’ll not tell my stars of my feelings for them
instead, I will live in fear.
Because seeing them some is better than
not seeing them at all,
But as long as my stars shine down on me
I will feel so very small.
Blessed be friends,
