Treasure Island

Michael K...

Last Star...

Star light.. Star bright,
last star i see...

As the night prepares for sleep,
their concert begins,
one song.. two songs.. three,
in unison their sweet harmony calls forth,
chorus of birds welcoming the new day.

Star light.. Star bright,
last star i see...

Caught up in the beauty,
their melody fills me,
in this hour between times,
Peace.. Hope.. Magic,
i am one with myself.. one with everything,
and i feel you.

Star light Star bright,
last star i see...

Gazing upwards into the wakening sky,
i see you,
last remnant of the night, shining so brightly,
you've waited for me.. once again my friend,
ready to give of yourself,
to give all.. so my dreams can be.

Star light.. Star bright,
last star i see...

With closed eyes,
and open heart,
a soul aflame once more,
a spirit's wish ushers forth,
into the heavens,
into your waiting arms.

Star light.. Star bright,
last star i see...

And, as if your only purpose, was to wait,
all night.. just to receive my wish,
your brightness fades making way for the dawn,
and new beginnings,
and in that instant.. you are gone,
but your promise remains.. i can feel it.

Can you?

Star light Star bright,
last star i see...
I wish i may.. i wish i might...

    Yes I can feel it...the fading of the last star...a 'constant' to witness and wish upon as each dawn begins, the promise remains, along with the chorus of the birds.-Cathy (Report) Reply

It is very nice to think
The world is full of meat and drink,
With little children saying grace
In every Christian kind of place.... Read complete »
