The moon hovers gently in the darkening sky,
Its pale light covering the earth likes a veil
Small stars burn radiantly in the darkness
Twinkling for all to see

A child gazes up at the night sky
Innocent eyes seeing more than most do.
This is her life,
They are her hope.

One star shines brightly above the rest,
Its brilliance standing out of the sea of diamonds
She reaches out to touch it
For this is where she's destined to go.


 "Even a fool knows you can't touch the stars, but it doesn't stop a wise man from trying."
Harry Anderson, "Night Court"

DawnEclipse~
This is so puurrrtttty !
It epitomizes the dreams within us all.
Child or adult ... we stand on tip-toe
to 'reach for the stars'.

I love this.

You paint a lovely image with this poem,
it has such a gentle longing to it,
thankyou for sharing it.
