Star of Beauty

I am a creature in this world
Made with heart, soul, and body
Despite of my impoverishment
I will fight for my dreams

Sun vanishes as the moon comes
And every time the darkness arrives
I'm lying on the peaceful surrounding
While hearing the whistle of silence

Together with the nature
I'm feeling the wind while it dances the trees
Resting in the green grasses
A typical day of mine

As I watch the night skies,
I saw the star of beauty
I gaze at her, hoping to be close
Wishing to be with her for some time

I knew her but it was shallow;
I want to make it deep and also to thank her
For giving me the shining light
An inspiration on the roads of darkness

These are the reasons
Why I had a constant struggle
Cause I'm just watching her in this far proximity 
If she only knew that bit by bit it kills me inside cause time by time I'm being wounded

But even though I want to be near
In my intuition I know I will suffer
For the star of beauty was ultimately distant
Its hard yet I won't give up, for nothing is impossible in my dream!

Like any other human
Many had tried to capture their stars
Some succeed to reach and some do not
Others stayed with wings but others fall back down

I need to possess an utmost bravery
I need to defeat the weaknesses of myself
Its for her, there's no turning back
I know my grandeur wings will emerge

I will fly to the heavens with uncertainty
Then I would reach the star of beauty
I will achieve the closeness that grants an exceptional bliss
I'm overjoyed! I won't forget this

Temporarily time will halt
I will savor that single moment
Let it be bound for eternity
So that I could be with you eternally

But in the end, my happiness ends
Chaos occurred, and that's my worry:
In your intense brightness and in my unpreparedness
My wings got rip and I fall down,  back into the land where I belong
