I no longer look to the skies.
For the stars are gone, missing.
Lost in the glare of city lights.
The night sky has lost its magic.
Rewind, back to my childhood.
I looked to the night skies in awe.
Millions of stars twinkled brightly.
While crickets sang with joy.
When the night was made for tales.
Of faeries and pixies that danced.
The twinkle of a starry night enchanted.
I gazed at the stars and dreamed magic.
Little stars that twinkle no more.
The black velvet has lost its shine.
For the city lights cast their beams.
Their rays cover the twinkle of stars.
