To A Star

An Ode to a Friend


hello there, little star.

how long have you been shining?

you sure are light,

and you sure are bright…

i can see myself reflected in you.

you appeared after a few minutes,

while my eyes continued to search for the perfect star.

and here you are.

there are millions of stars trying to twinkle hard enough to

take my eyes

away from you,

but i stay.

gazing at your celestial glittering,

entranced by you.

say hello to the moon for me.

tell him that i wait here

on earth

waiting for someone who would

put a lasso around him

and give him to me.

“i wish i may,

i wish i might

have this wish i wish tonight” .
