Million Stars


There are a million stars up in the sky
But only one star in a million attracts my eye
Even though they all shimmer and they all shine
There is only one star that I want as mine
So when I wish upon the stars at night
I wish for only one to always to be in my sight
So upon that one and only star I make my wish
Sadly to other stars and people I must seem selfish
But I indeed am not a selfish or a thoughtless man
There is one star and wish for everyone that will and can
When I was a young boy I found my one and only star
It was shining down and upon me from afar
Of the million stars I then chose just that one
It became the star that I make my wishes upon
When at night I go out and up at the sky I do stare
I look for my star and hoping it is still hanging there
And that star will be mine until that day that I die
It is my one and only star shining for me up in the sky.

poet Richard Lovelace

Tell me not (Sweet) I am unkind,
That from the nunnery
Of thy chaste breast and quiet mind
To war and arms I fly.

True, a new mistress now I chase,
