Reaching for the Most Distant Star....
Darkness fills the sky in the early mornings
hard cold as I look up at the stars
The cold fills my clothing ... Two below zero
as I clean the snow from her car
Once I thought ......I dreamt of roping
a star in the distance
Now it's only the beauty of a universe
the dreams met some resistance
But the stars still hold there essence
Never changing ...never darkening
And blue is the moon finishing the night
amid mornings harkening
The winds pick up in the pines on
the pastures edge
Maybe all I needs to reinvent my dream
take some new pledge
Dust off the stars .......if you will....
for age is creeping up on me
The drive once strong ...now lost......
though I think the stars can see
For you .....all of you.... hitch your dreams
to mine ...we'll see what we can do
There's a lot of hope left among us......
maybe I can tie my self to you
