Let the stars shine he said

Glitter prettier than diamonds

Sparkle brighter than gold

Glisten clearer that water


Let the stars shine he said

Let them share some of their light in this dark night’s embrace

Let them give hope when no sun or moon shines

Let them offer a smile to those etched in frowns


Let my children know that a glimmer of light

Is all they need to light the fires of happiness!
