Unwritten Soul

Counting Stars Through Your Eyes

Dark was born to show light
As secret of stars revealed at night
No matter how dark was your heart
I still found the beauty of your side

Do i need to look at the sky
When i can see stars reflected on your eyes
Don't need to read the constellation as my guide
When i can find shine of trust through your eyes

Counting stars through your eyes
Maybe i missed to count many shines
Though i count each one from what your eyes shared...
But how our eyes can map the whole universe
When imperfection is part of us

No matter how dark they colored your words
As dark was born to show the light
Truth will shine over the shade
As much as stars revealed at night

Counting stars through your eyes
No matter how many shines i missed
As long as i can find them on you with your smile
I know that you the one that deserve my trust

Poet's Notes about The Poem

This write may not a strong as my previous poem
but somehow i found myself again when i look stars above
about this poem...
This is how i look my life on others...How bad we are, keep good value with us, bad past will guide us a way, giving a chance for past mistake can be good for making better understanding and its not wrong for us to give someone a chance..In friendship/relationship trust and honest is a must...Sometimes we did mistakes but we arent born to be always perfect so let we accept imperfection what we made and what people made...To walk in moving time, i learned a lot through pain and smile, i learned that dont feel bad when people mistaken your bad, truth will come as light win over dark. Whatever we have been and will going, never lost each other, friends forever and love unites all people and hate is a reason why it never be happened_Soul

    Love this poem, Soul....you speak of the stars, and the spark in one's eyes,
    you realize the truth, and when someone lies. Lessons we all must learn,
    and pain we have all experienced, my dear friend, .. many {{{hugs}}} I send. (Report) Reply

    Deep and meaningful - without darkness there can be no light, and imperfection can lead us to become better.

    Hi Soul.. hope you doing great. It is a remarkable poem. Beautiful way to say what you feel despite of the negative things happening. But is it really this simple to still see the stars when it is dark? I really wonder being poets we express but does it really reach out to the person? (Report) Reply

    Through the glass darkly shins the stars, reflections to the soul, of winters heart, to find good and bad, light and dark and here we have truth. I like it BB : O) (Report) Reply

    there are some words which can not b expressed such as night can not manifest its brightness despite of billions of stars. but it has its own beauty that so billion of stars adore it. (Report) Reply

    Wonderful wisdom espressed in this very nice poem. So true, all of us have our dark side, but even if we display our darkest side, we cannot keep our little stars from shining. I love the images used.
    Excellent. (Report) Reply

    Unless there is darkness, we won't be able to enjoy light! If a person can find light even in darkness, it is a great quality!

    Truth will shine over the shade
    As much as stars revealed at night

    Beautiful lines! ! (Report) Reply

poet Christina Georgina Rossetti

Go from me, summer friends, and tarry not:
I am no summer friend, but wintry cold,
A silly sheep benighted from the fold,
A sluggard with a thorn-choked garden plot.
