To Match The Stars


Did we put the streetlights
to match the stars?
to amaze people
because the stars amaze us?

Do we smile every day
to light up the way
because the stars shine that way
even when they can't be seen?

Do we shine in our hearts
because we want to match the stars?

I have a star among a 'zillion
who knows Jesus named the stars
and up in Heaven we'll always smile
even if now we only smile
to match the stars.
