light of night

How bright the moon shines
The stars twinkling aside
For night has no end
Don’t let the light fade

The stars twinkling aside
Moonlight penetrates all darkness
Don’t let the light fade
Stars twinkle in the night

Moonlight penetrating darkness
Night is to be treasured
Stars twinkle in the night
Forever light

Night is to be treasured
The moon starts to wane
Forever light
May it be prolonged

The moon starts to wane
Night will return tomorrow
May it be prolonged
And make a wish on a star

Night will return tomorrow
How brightly shines the moon
And make a wish on a star
For night has no end

Pulling Grass

Stars scrape the eyes
night turns to dark
a prayer whispered
but not unheard
asking for the light
begging for truth
hands grasp each other
in desperate comfort
awaiting the unknown
unsure of a free fall
yet willing to trust
and pull the grass
up by the tips
hoping it won’t break
instead growing more
longer, stronger
even steadfast and sure
a prayer whispered
loud and clear
for strength to face
whatever comes my way

Full Moon

There are no stars in the sky tonight
For their shine can’t compare
They hide away for today is the day…

I look at the sky, no shining eyes look back
Instead the brightness of the moon completes the sky
And takes my breath away… oh, I wish you had stayed

The full moon is like me and you,
Perfect and whole but only for so long.
Here one day, gone the next
We thought we’d have forever
When we only had a full moon.

Not so rare but oh so beautiful,
Remember the one night where we’d lay
Close by to watch the moon rise…

We’d watch the black sky, hand in hand
The man in the moon is my only company now
He listens but he can’t touch like you can

The full moon was like me and you,
Perfect and whole but only for so long.
Here one day, gone the next.
We thought we’d have forever
When we only had a full moon.

As I gaze upwards tonight, that shining face looks down
It is so complete like we used to be
Deep inside I hope you’re looking at the full moon
But the odds of that are once in a blue…

The full moon was like me and you,
Perfect and whole but only for so long.
Here one day, gone the next.
We thought we’d have forever
When we only had a full moon.

Twinkle, twinkle little star
How I wonder where you are
Up above the world so high
The moon tonight, it shines so bright
Twinkle, twinkle little star
How I wonder where you are

just one

looking up at a starry night
millions of eyes stare back
an endless expanse ever
surrounding the world
the beauty of something
so magnificent really
stops me in my tracks

during the day, the sun is out
hiding the stars from sight
yet when the day is over
the evening star rises
the beginning of night
leaves me wanting to see
more stars in the skies

shining brightly through the night
one star will call to me
yet I don’t know which one
with so many looking down
someday, I know I’ll find out

if there are so many stars
up there in the heavens
why can’t I have just one
night only lasts so long
so I will wait forever
for just one star
