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
