Wish on a Star

A fervent hope, a heart pain
consumes you, the memories start
the filmy past leaves a stain
upon your battered heart

Glistening eyes look at the sky
sapphire blue and dark
A single significant star is there
one that has left its mark

upon the faces of those who see
it's singular shining light
inviting all, you and me
to marvel at the sight

We hold our breath, close our eyes
clench our teeth and hope
wish very hard, forget the sighs
Look upward, climb the rope

We climb and climb, not daring to believe
almost there! we reach our hands to the star
but the teasing scintillation darts away, we grieve
forgetting once more, who we were and are

    You are really amazing Kathryn. You seriously should put all these poems in a book and sell them to me, becuase I would buy them.
