my stars


When I look up
I see
All these sparkling stars
Shining down on me
In my darkest nights
They guide me home
Lead me to saftey
And tuck me in tight

These glistening stars
Hold my hand
Dry my tears
And make sure everything is alright

Spread all across the sky
These stars shine down on me
Always reminding me I am not alone

They shine so brilliantly
Making me smile
Bringing laughter to my heart
And lifting me up

Thank you stars
for looking down on me
For knowing when I needed you
Even though I never said a word

Thank you for holding the space
Letting me just be
And thank you for not letting me lose my way

I do not know what I would do without all of you!
