All the Stars Grow Bright
I see you gazing at the glowing canopy of night,
Your eyes bright with wonder.
Constellations dance before you like sprites
Illuminating a deep and endless imagination.
Timeless and still, you sit enraptured by the spheres of heat and fire
Hanging in the galaxy.
Day and night, your eyes are fixed ever upward
To all that is Beautiful, all that is Good.
Every fiber of your being
Longs to live
Where the sky meets eternity, and sunlight echoes
At first blush.
Reach up into the sky and find yourself
Among the stars.
Let the hopes and dreams within you blaze like wildfire —
Hold fast to that hunger which sets your soul alight.
For the days will pass until again
You gaze into the darkness,
And feel as though the world
Will never shine again.
But just as your spark fades to ember
In the vast expanse,
You’ll find a budding dreamer staring skyward
And see the light that you once had
Burn radiant in her eyes.
There is no joy like that peace within the silence
As the sky begins to glow
For the one whose universe is unfolding.
For there, in the quiet hour of midnight,
A still, pure hope illuminates the darkness.
In that moment, as she sits enraptured before you,
The world again is right.
Then we remember just how far
The light can take us
As we shift our gaze once more
Upon the starry sky.
It then we find our childlike wonder
And all the stars grow bright.
