STARS

Hast thou ever watched a starlit sky
Gazed at those jewels of night?
Hast thou ever seen one shooting by
A pure and brilliant light?

'Tis a wondrous sight my heart dost know
For I've beheld it of'en and long ...
And dreamed young dreams with spirit aglow ...
With lips breathing rapturous song!

Each star a hope reveals to me
Of numerous, thrilling things ...
Of lands afar and sights to see ...
Each star a message brings.

One star outshining all the rest
I call my guiding light ...
It stirs my depth to all its best ...
T'will lead my soul aright!

  3. deep inside your heart
    is a bright
    white light
    that holds
    the answers
    to every question
    your soul
    has ever had.

    once seen
    it is never
    forgotten.

    as a wise man
    once said:
    "the kingdom
    of heaven is
    within you."
