Eulogy of the Wishing Star

It was the star of light

That shown so very bright

The first star you could see

Each and every night

And upon you wish that you may

You wish that you might

Have the wish

You wished for that night

Has faded away

Over time as years went by

The stars immaculate light

Began to go astray

As the children grew

As they tend to do

The wishes once so rich

Became but a few

The wishes and dreams of children

Wiped away by time

The children all stopped wishing

To the stars of the sky

And without the wishes

And hopes and dreams

The wishing star just…


The sad thing is

No one seemed to notice

All to busy with life

But the star is gone

Never to return

For we

Did kill the wishing star
