There’s Magic in the Night Sky

Wishing on stars isn’t something we leave to childhood. It’s a magic we carry with us that reminds us that innocence isn’t lost as we grow.

Isn’t it amazing,

how small we sometimes feel

when standing beneath

the vast canvas of night sky

dotted with the silver light

of a million twinkling stars?

And yet, my child, when I look at you,

I’m filled with that same wonder.

The same wonder I’ve always felt,

when my gaze first beholds

the golden glow of the sun’s first rays,

or the pale glow of the winter-white moon.

Marveling, that something so mysterious

and seemingly untouchable,

could fill me so completely,

touch me so deeply,

and remind me so eloquently,

of the magic that lives inside us all.
