These Stars

Life is filled with light
As the sky is filled with stars
Brilliant shining points
To guide us through the dark

Life is like a voyage
Difficult to navigate
Hidden rocks within these waters
But shining points can guide your way

Each point is a person
Who helped weather a storm
A beacon showing you the way
When you are far from home

Points make a constellation
Like the stars up in the sky
They form the pattern of your life
And these patterns do not lie

They're something you can turn to
When life's waters they get deep
Like a sailor upon the ocean
Your course they help you keep

And when the sky clouds over
And your stars they fade from view
Know that they are still there
Always ready to guide you

For true friends never falter
Even though they may not stay
Always a star in stormy waters
To help guide your way.
