A Star Away


Tonight you are starbound
your smile caught in moonlight
your laughter shooting stars
Echoing in the quiet
adventure most will never know.
You walked the heavens
surely a glimpse most never see
you took your dreams..
and a little piece of me.
Never know another heartache
Never know another tear
Never know another uncertain moment
Never know another fear.
Ever more
lingered light
you're dancing in the twilight.
You're just a star away.

Just a star away.
