Am I Star Stuff?
You say that I shine a light in the darkness,
but does my essence truly shimmer?
Is my glow strong enough to steady the shaking ground under your feet?
Am I strong enough to lift you back up again?
I smile for you to smile.
I laugh for you to laugh.
I love for you to love,
and I long for you to be happy,
even when I am not,
for that will always be enough.
I wish upon the star that I hope to someday be
that the light I shine means something
and that the love I spread won’t fade.
The Woodland Wallflower
