The Star and I - Poem

The Star and I
By BushMaid

I saw a star shine in the sky,
Its glowing red, it caught my eye.
The colour strange, I wondered why
A crimson tinge would hail it nigh.

It bade me ponder, by and by:
Was it just born, or soon to die?
A mystery, it sails up high - 
A lonely sparkle on the fly.

One in billions, I scarce can try
To count the stars that light the sky.
But this one spark, it drew my eye - 
Its bleeding colour made me cry.

Its crimson scarlet like a dye,
It longs to stain the world gone by -
And on its own permeate the sky,
To bring a light to every eye.

So lonely like the star, am I -
A different colour on the fly.
With all I am, I want to try
Permeate my world below the sky.

I am just born, and soon to die,
Life - like the star - goes quickly by.
One in billions, the star and I -
Permeate the world? Well, we can try.
