My First Poem

This is the first poem I ever wrote- I was eight.

Shining Star

You are my shining star, the one that shines in the night sky afar.

You let the moon beams shine on my face, like a beautiful stream of silver lace.

You hold me in your arms so tight, then I see the first speck of morning light.

You tell me to wait, that you will be here before the night is late.

'Don't go away' is all you can say, 'someday I'll come to stay.'


I sit and wait, but you're not here.

I hold back tears and all the fear.

Then I blink, and in a moment I'm awake.

I stare into darkness and hear the sounds that it makes.

I blink again to look at the sky, and notice one star is especially bright.

'It was only a dream' I hear myself say.

But I wonder if the star was shining my way.
