star light star bright, what dreams rest in your keeping.
what hopes have i entrusted to you as i press faithfully toward my destiny.
i have prayed earnestly, waited eargerly, stayed the course, and kept moving.
on silent nights when seemingly the rest of the world has slept
this dreamer has been kept by her gazes in your direction.
you have been the recollection of her dreams when her heart has felt weary
and her resolve has felt worn.
when her lips could not present her requests to God
she could look to you, bright star,
and entranced by your beauty,
found the will to say “Lord, if nothing else, thank you”.
