Extinguishes the twinkling of a sailors guide.
Promises of a brilliant, warm day as birds
Begin stretching wings; the sky changes from
Midnight blue to bright yellow, then baby blue.
Rustling in the trees above;
Squirrels begin chasing each other.
The last star diminishes in light;
I say this to no-one, just myself:
"Star-light, star-bright, last star I see tonight.
I hope what I say, I say it right.
My darling, as you read the word I say to you,
Remember that I am but a SIMPLE person,
I ONLY have ME TO offer;
But a simple person,
Not having much to offer but ME
Three inhabitants are within MY heart
In constant control of EACH thing I SAY and DO.
I LISTEN to each partner, UNDERSTANDING, and COMPREHENSION,
Are able to control the other inhabitants of MY heart.
I LISTEN, not just with my EARS,
But with MY EYES, as well.
For MY partners to effectively perform THEIR mission,
I MUST "listen" to the surrounding environment -
The WAY the words are said, the 'body English" involved.
UNDERSTANDING must receive all this information
