Twinkle, twinkle, little star,
Can’t see them but there they are:
Up above the world so high
Dreaming suns wandering by
Dancing, singing, near and far,
Twinkle, twinkle, little star.
Atmosphere has filtered out
Night-time lights we think about
So it’s dark, but they’re still there
Outside our blanket of air
Make a wish and they will hear,
Stars outside our atmosphere.
Stars look down upon us all
Seeing that we rise and fall
Tidal forces of our lives
Ebb and flow. From that derives
Strength and hope and things we’ve learned
Joy and beauty gifts and earned
How you twinkle, my friend star
I don’t think you know you are
Such a source of light and grace
Part and parcel of this place
Twinkle on, long as you may
Because you bring light to my day.
