Reach a Star
I wrote this in about 5 minutes during a class lol.. something that was simply on my mind and I had to get it on paper ASAP.
How do you reach a star?
Do you stand on your toes?
Do you jump up and down and stretch far as you go?
Do you travel farther than a man's ever been
or invent a device that will take you to it?
Should I run and just run 'til I can't anymore?
Should I holler and yell 'til my throat gets too sore?
Maybe setting a trap will sort of coax it down
or if I shoot an arrow it'll hit the ground.
...would it make a sound?
Smoke signal, morse code, or a carrier pigeon:
some words from my heart might make it come on in
If I sit and stare at it for awhile
it'll twinkle at me. That always makes me smile.
what if I simply asked it to come down?
I'd hold it and value it as though it's LIFE
Through all of that work, and all of that strife
I went through to get you, no I'd never let you
believe for a second that I'd ever forget you
But hey.. you're a star. Too far to connect to.
I'll be invisible
..long as I can see you.
