Dress me up as a star...........poem

If I were to dress up as the stars I would
want to be like the real ones
and paste myself against the nighttime
sky minus daytime suns

you might then here the sounds of movement
in older parts undiscovered
as if we were underwater and hitting together
stones with our eyes covered

I might splash across a lake sky in the dark
to inspire those younger lovers
and yet what if I were to spread a powder
over the eye's of sleeping sisters and brothers

Ah the magic I could perform the inspirations
to the innocent minds
just to travel dreams around this world
as you doze in peaceful times

Look ......look aloft now as I turn down by the horizon
and die away a falling star
so that you might find a cooling stone
from another world afar

Perhaps but sit right there and blaze in blue
for I will never move from this place
to greet you each and every night and glow
warmth against your face

So dress me up as one small star or
a sky full of them ever so bright
just to show your soul the way in the
darkest hours of night
