starwink

just how many stars do you suppose there are up there?
my fair haired child asks me~
a billion? trillion? quadrillion?
i tell him no one really knows how many
as we snuggle close and stare in silence
under the cool shade of the evening
they come out every night and sparkle at us
in the dusky twilight sky
and i know
that one of them is looking just for me
mirroring my search
longing for the connection
how long would it take me to find it?
i know it’s up there
amidst the twinkling ones
there surely must be a winking one
looking down on me
wishing me peace
feeding me hope
til we’re together again
one high one low
waiting patiently
as the brilliant sky unfolds
