Our Own Star
I wonder what life would be
Without the beauty of a flower
Or never to meet our soul mate
Never to know love's power.
No moon to touch a lover's face
No stars to beautify the night
What could be more dreadful
Without sun to furnish us light.
If rain clouds stop developing
If rain no longer fell from the sky
Would God give us rain again
Or let everything on earth die.
With these thoughts in my mind
I realize how lucky each of us are
We have this beautiful earth home
Perhaps somewhere our own star.
