I walk outside

Everything seems so dark

Have only the stars

To give me light

Wind blows the grass

Makes the leaves dance

Swirls in my hair

Carries away my every care

And the stars

Twinkle down on me

Like diamonds on velvet

They seem to be winking

Are they smiling at me?

They seem to be thinking

They seem to be asking me

To wish

A crystal clear sky

Not a cloud in sight

Moon shines down

With light so bright

And the stars

Whisper to me

They’re telling me

To wish

As the stars fade

And the sun awakes

And the dawn is mirrored on the shimmering lake

As the crickets end their midnight requiem,

As crazy as it may seem,

I wish
