Twinkle Poem by Rakeem Person


Rating: 5.0

Twinkle twinkle little star
How did you ever get so far
From where I thought that you would be?
Shining with joy, ever so brilliantly

Don’t ever fall from grace
Because I would only wish you back
Right back to your rightful place

Twinkle twinkle little star
I most certainly know who you are
And just who you might be
But for now I admire how you shine so brightly

Because I cannot touch you
For it is just not the time
So I reach out instead in this childish rhyme

Twinkle twinkle, my shooting star
Sear me with your heat, leave a scar
So that if you should disappear
I would always remember that I once had you here

In the palm of my hand
But your warmth is too much to bear
That’s why its from afar I stand

Twinkle twinkle my little star
Esta estrella que no deseo apagar
Because you must shine in spite of yourself
Vibrantly shimmering despite what’s left

No matter if this star I ever attain
I will forever cherish its presence
Because from it something I gained

Twinkle twinkle my precious star
I’m so glad I know just who you are
Up above my world so high
More beautiful than a diamond caught in the sky
Twinkle twinkle little star
Oh how I love just who you are
