Courting in secret, wishing for my star.

My prayers to keep it, you are my star.

In the safety of my dreams, you are my star.

Beauty gazing for what seems, like an eternity.

Too fearful for speaking, too nervous for flirting.

My words escape me, yet flourish from the page.

May be it’s not yet my season, my love ferments with age.

I guess I must wait, I confess I must say,

You are my star, you are my star.

But I am just a glimmer in the galaxy of your existence.

But I go unnoticed from a distance.

Burned by your heat, I have yearned for so long.

For you without me, is like a singer with no song.

Yet still, you are my star!
