A single star lights up the sky tonight;
I envy it because it sees your smile.
Its soft blue light could never seem more bright
Than now as it observes my poor heart's trial.
The star, I know, will fade when the dawn breaks,
But now it blazes in the velvet sky.
It glitters on the faces of the lakes;
So much like your mem'ry in my mind's eye.
I will forever stare into the star
Until the sun steals it away at dawn.
Its light is ages old and travels far;
A thousand years ago, that star was gone.
. I ride upon the beam of light it sends,
. Hoping it will bring me to you again.
