The Star I See at Night

By Maria Salinas, age 11, California


The star I see at night
Pierces my heart like a bright flashlight
It makes me feel really great
I really don’t know what to say
Sometimes it takes my breath away
I feel like a bear holding honey
You can’t buy this feeling with money
Not wanting to leave my sight
I make a wish every night
This star is special to me
Because it twinkles differently
Than any other star
In the ocean blue sky
I see it every day and night
Even when I close my eyes
In my mind I try to squeeze it tight
Under beautiful, bright lights
I can see it in my dreams
I can see it during thundery, rainy days
I see it every second of day
Why does it always like to stay with me?
