WRITTEN IN THE STARS
Some nights, I look up at the stars,
so bright, yet far away.
I know by morning they'll be gone
but I wish that they would stay.
I'd stare at them all day and night,
I'd make myself a chart.
Their shape, their size, their stories too,
I'd learn them all by heart.
For they say our future's in the stars;
it's written with their light
on the inky black of empty space,
where it echoes in the night.
Who will I be, I want to ask
but they're much too far away
that even if they answered me,
I wouldn't hear the words they'd say.
But I'll wait and watch them every night
for endless spots of time
until I learn to see their words
and their secret becomes mine.
