Star light, star bright
so soft and glowing
in your incandescence
reaching out to touch
and lightly spark imagination
creating yet another dream
to nourish every seed of future forming

Do you realize
the power that you hold?
power that can mesmerize a mind
and flame into desire
in an instance of one touch
of your sweet love
upon a lonely heart
that seeks its home

Such was your descent
but now you seek
no more than to ascend again
back into the indigo
of nighttime skies

There and yet
completely out of touch
of human reach

and while I know
that I must let you go
I pray
that on a future night
you deem to share
your soft and glowing
ever flowing
light of love with me . . .
