I swallowed a star
and it told me who you are
I was under the dream tree
and you were beside me
and i wrapped my arms around you
like so many times that I wanted to
the ground turned to gold
and our tears simply rolled
into something new

(chorus)
oh it said
“you must, you must be brave
and you must do
the things that I’ve said
and I’ll hold you in my arms again
if you ever meet me there
inside the garden”

I swallowed a star and it told me
who I am
oh you will find the way it is all
part of the plan
and I wrapped my arms around you
like so many times that I wanted to
the ground turned to gold
and our tears simply rolled
into something new
(chorus)

i’m glowing
not like before
not like the bright lights
of fireworks

not like the constancy of
the bright moon or sun
or any of the celestial
lights.
that’s too grandiose.

not like a birthday candle
that’s full of surprises
and is waiting for you
to blow it out

and not like a
decorative candelabra
theres just
too much flickering

no.

its like a warm and steady glow
of a lantern
Like my heart is finally alight
and with an open chest
it is leading the way thru the dark

star wish

I made a wish tonight
it was a dream forgotten
….
maybe you have one too.
maybe someone told you
to stop chasing it
and that it made no sense
or it had no value

but…

it gave you life!!
and wasn’t that the
most valuable gift?
and it was at your core
and it didn’t have to
COST a thing from you
but it was WORTH
ALL THE THINGS
because it was
YOURS.

and somehow…
you realize you are
SO VALUABLE
AND
SO LOVED
that you open your eyes
to see the new version
of the old
dream dream dream?
and it was there from
the beginning
and will be to the end.
and it was GIVEN
TO YOU FREELY.

this is amazing grace.
amazing grace.
let it go
let it be
let it be so
