I like to think the glow at night

from stars high up above,

is the light of heavenly beings    

shining down on those they love.


I pretend you are the biggest

and brightest star I see.

And your twinkle is a wink,

meant especially for me


I’m thinking as you’re twinkling

and shining there so bright,

   you’re saying that you love me      

   and telling me goodnight.”


When I am sad from missing you

I know you’re never far.

I look up toward the heavens

and find you…my twinkling star.
