There in the nighttime sky
I behold a little lonely star
Where my thoughts of love reside
Held aloft and brighter by far
Ever the steady guiding light
For a traveler through the storm
How can something in the cold of night
Be so distant, yet ever so warm
No jewels upon Earth can measure
Nor even be held in any compare
For God so values this treasure
Her light in Heaven He will forever bear

Such a beautiful little star in the envious sky
I shield her radiance from my undeserving eyes

perfection jer, so pretty to read...love seeing things thru your eyes...and they are  most deserving.*S*
stalking you in the stars,
your jm

 The stars shine so bright, now's the time
I close my eyes - soft wind touch my face,
Cool sand upon the place where I once kissed you
And held you close.
Now I will reach for the stars...
Because Oh my love, that's where you are...
Though the storms of black night rage on
I still see your face
I still feel your lips on mine
And though my heart feels all alone without you
I still hear you sing to me
I still hear your voice on the sea...

JML~
As a lover of gazing at the stars,
I found this enchanting.
They dazzle us with the radiant light
of distant warriors of flight.
Weave the sprinkle of enchantment
on the twinkle of their beauty.
You did them poetic justice.

This is, indeed, a lovely bit of writing, an ethereal love poem, if you will. Beautiful.

This is fantastic, so sweet. I too am a lover of staring up into the sky and gazing at the stars.

How I love the way you wrapped this up with those last two lines....breathtaking, yet sad.  You are very deserving sir...have faith in yourself!
