My Star - Poem by rio monica canlas

As I look up into the sky
I always ask myself, why?
I can stare at you for a long time
And how you make me feel high…

For a moment I realized,
I was just watching the stars that shine so bright
Though they’re too far, but still at my sight,
Oh, how they make me feel happy every night!

Same as the star,
That is how distant you are;
I can’t reach nor can I touch
This stupid heart is longing too much.

To see you, is my wish every year,
Since New Year is only once a year;
Being close again would be a dream come true,
Nevertheless, it happens, during my REM sleep, after sometime thinking of you.

I may not get anything from you
Even a single word that I can cling to,
But please, let me look at you,
Like those stars, doing nothing, but rid off all my blues…
