To Wish Upon A Star

Storm-tossed and lost, he wished for stars to see

through tempests relentlessly encroached.

Stars giggled and twinkled at his earthy plea,

but one, drawn to his twilight, approached…

…She smiled one thousand suns! His soul caught fire,

smelting from dark clouds a golden spire

that pierced both hearts. She wished their worlds were wed

and Earth hosted starlight in Heaven’s stead…

Their passion forged a brilliant team:

He sparked gold thread from every earthly heart;

She sewed each soul to its solar counterpart.

And so, all life was lit by lovers’ scheme.

A golden seam cradled their newborn wish:

Heaven and Earth pulled close, so they could kiss.
