I Wish For Star And Sun - Poem by Elizabeth Padillo Olesen

When nights are cold
when my sobbing blends
with silence in darkness,
I wish for a star to twinkle,
a star that smiles
to illumine my dark room.

When my days are dreary
when my sighs are too weak
to pour out the pain
that has lingered long,
I wish for a sun -
a bright shining sun
with rays to penetrate
into my cold and sobbing heart.
