The Stars They Shine

The stars they shine, like diamonds in velvet.
So grand and so bright way up in the sky.
A breeze blew by but I barely felt it.
My mind mesmerized by those stars, but why?
Then clouds rolled in and I let out a sigh.
There will be no more stargazing tonight.
I find a place in the darkened field to lie.
I fall asleep, dreaming of the stars so bright.

I waken to the early morning light.
The beautiful sun hides my stars from me.
So all day I wait for that nighttime sight.
I wait, daydreaming under a tree.
Waiting for my beautiful tonight.
Waiting for my stars to light up the night.
