North Star

If I was a star I would choose to be the Northern One shining so bright
For then all could see me wherever they are ...my twinkling shimmering light
When lost one only has to look to the North and there I would be
One could find their way by keeping me in their sights to see
Watching as young lovers stroll down the street hand in hand
My radiant streams billowing across many lands
If ever one does feel afraid, alone, no where to go
Look to the North and my beams shall always show
Guiding you to the path that you are seeking...
At night I am always there...peaking
Come day I have laid down to get some rest
So another night I can shine down even in the west

(Author's Note: This was written in response to a challenge from a friend.)

    The North star is a guiding light, one that even navigators use to find their way across the oceans What a magnificent analogy to use it as a guiding light through life's journey, Mary. Thank you for your welcome comments. Always a pleasure to read your work. Love, Carolyn
