starsDazzling like diamonds on a black velvet sky
A celestial phenomenon way up so high
So distant, so different, in the vast space above
So magical, so wondrous, stirring feelings of love
So silent yet so willing, to share your secret
With anyone that makes an effort to connect
What mysteries you hold, what secrets untold
You have arranged yourselves in patterns
That have stayed consistent though time has rolled
You have guided mankind
Since the time he developed his mind
You’ve guided a traveler you’ve guided a saint
You’ve guided a farmer and inspired an artist to paint
I beseech you in all humility
O stars, guide me to my true destiny
So grateful am I to behold you as I look up
You reveal yourselves
Through all the impurities that man throws up
You are so kind as to bestow upon me a sight so rare
When I look up, I witness the marvel of a Shooting Star!!
