IF I WERE A STAR


If I were a star for a single night
I could scatter my heart-beats in infinite
light ...
I could learn from the skies all the earth conceals
And my soul could prove the things it feels
I could mount through the clouds on shining
wings ...
Singing at last as I long to sing!

But more than all this as the night drew near
More than in ecstasy, more than in fear ...
I should hover above the world waiting to see
My darling, my sweetheart, raise his eyes
to me!

  12. Thank you for your visit to APOGEE Poet. It is such a delight to build an exchange blog community. I most certainly appreciate the sentiment and devotion expressed in, "If I Were A Star." By the very words and the intention, you are very much that "star."

    Will return most assuredly. I share your lens, one that sees the beauty in our gift of life.
