A sudden calm approaches near,
Erasing doubt and easing fear,
Darkness overshadows all our dreams,
A little hope in moon lit beams.
Star light, star bright,
The first star I see tonight,
I wish I may, I wish I might,
Have the wish I wish tonight.
I wish for smiles to appear on faces,
For equality in all the races,
For a little magic in every life
and ways to trickle away the strife.
I wish for a little something under my tree,
Spot of perfection to some degree.
I wish for a friend who gets what I mean
Who sees through my poet’s screen.
Twinkle, twinkle, little star,
How I wonder what you are.
Sometimes this thought brings me to tears,
How we have wished upon these stars for years,
How we have made the same wish many times,
How we have sung and sung these same rhymes,
And how and how and how and how,
These wishes remain unrealised now.
