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.

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Frost

Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
From what I've tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
