Ode to a Star ✭

You showed me the stars,

You told me I’d land among them 

Even if I shot for the moon. 

You are a dreamer, and an optimist.

You live among the stars.

But I cannot see the stars the way you do. 

They are muddled by clouds and storms, 

Only seen by ones who truly believe.

You’re a believer, you’re a dreamer, 

And you are a survivor. 

It is to you that I look for smiles.

And the star that gives me light.
