The Promise

Every night before I sleep
I look upon the sky
And catch the gleaming stars
As they twinkle in the eye
A cloud has made formation
And for a moment I can't see
What the dark can offer
For the frightened child in me
A wish upon a twinkling star
A wish that might come true
If the cloud will stop formation
And hide no dream from you
So there it sets up in the sky
And twinkles in the night
A thousand precious gems of heaven
And always in your sight
Come down from all the heavens
Cast your lasting light on me
Shower me with blessings
So that I may always see
The beauty of the darkness
Which frightens most away
Will guide me to a new life
As I start my promised day.
