No one noticed one more light in the sky,
a little blue star who just started to shine.
He yawned and opened his little blue eyes,
and hoped he had plenty of life and time.

He shimmered his best and watched the earth,
a little blue planet with a sunshine glow.
He took in the clouds and the foam of the sea,
and hoped his light reached the world below.

The little blue star should have been content,
but the space around him was much too bare.
He waited and wished for something to happen,
and hoped other stars would join him there.

The friends he dreamed of never came,
and the little blue star, no longer new,
dropped from the sky in an arrow of dust,
and hoped his fall made a wish come true.

The author's comments:
I wanted to branch out from my usual style and ended up writing this. I love how it rhymes and the child-like feeling that comes from this story.
