' One Bright Star


One bright star in the vast unknown
A blazing ember in the night sky shone
Reminding me that I'm not alone...............
One bright star;

One bright star in the evening sky
Holds its own where the angels fly
Anchors the bond between you and I............
One bright star;

One bright star that I wish upon
The first to rise when the sun is gone
Lights my way 'til the early dawn.............
One bright star;

One bright star In the midnight blue
Holds the dreams that I dream of you
Take my hand and I'll lead you to
One bright star.

    Melodious penning, Ms. Midnight...Structurally smooth as satin. As David H. alluded to, and i must concur with...Indeed we all do want that one bright star...the one whose shimmer carries hapiness & peace of mind....There are millions of multitudes of these celestial bodies above us....Enough for each and everyone of us to own as ours....And tht's what ''Wishing'' is all about, right?

Of friends, who live within an easy walk,
Or neighbours, daily, weekly, in my sight:
