Hello to new days and a night that brings us stars above. Have you ever wondered about the stars and their needs? Perhaps, the stars need more…
The Stars Need More
The stars need more than heaven.
You see, they long for our awe-filled lines,
Our large eyes through telescopes, and
Visions we have of their part in our goals.
The stars need more than light –
They require form, freedom of touch, and
Perhaps even a burst or two for good luck.
The stars are cold in the knowledge that
They outlast our bodies, yet stay
Warm in the safety of what
Hope they provide for our minds.
Dear stars above, may
You rest well tonight.
