A Forlorn Night Star

I will shine for endless nights, waiting for you to see 
So far away, I try reaching out, will you ever know:
In bright times you can’t find me; so every night I flicker
I’m not your future, I’m not your now, 
I am indeed, some time gone by.

You seem so lost, in your own small world,
And when you’re done looking, where you don’t need to,
Look up to the night sky, into my distant light.
If you can see, then say you remember,
Blessed with that time, into your waiting vision,
I will twinkle back my love to you.
