Grabbing at stars as they pass by
So much wonder
So many ways to turn
All that’s happened I’ve had to earn
The star that shines brightest for me,
I can’t bear my eyes to pry from
For what if tomorrow it has gone and disappeared?
What beauty would there be to see?
I struggle now to turn my face away
To rid my unsteady fears
If this special star truly exists
In more than just a mind’s eye
Then I will surely wake to embrace its light once again
So now I take that heavy leap and dream some more
