Star - Poem by Dejan Stojanovic

Far, yet always present
You were waiting to be born

From a dream long ago you came
Waiting to be seen

Sensed by many, but never really seen
Your words understood and heard by no one

You touched others, but no one touched you
You felt sensation, they were asleep

You needed to be found
Reborn in an intentional accident

You were light in need of light
But no one was a star

A star needs a star
