Star sprite

Written by: Jillian Veitenheimer

In the abyss of night
When without sight
I gaze upon the stars
My mind slips into memoirs

How my heart aches
And my spirit breaks
The longing I feel
For a love that was real

The light in the dark
The hope that you mark
I wish upon your brightness
For a life of justice

Lead me heavenly being
Clear my seeing
End this torture
Provide me shelter

Guide me through 
Perfect my virtue
My soul in your hands
Carry me over the lands

I beg of you
Please be my rescue
From this place
Take me in your embrace

Oh brilliant star
Though you shine afar
Hold me in your light
I am your sprite
