I looked for a star….
That is as beautiful as you are
I searched all day and searched all night
To find that light that shines so bright
You twinkle no matter how dark times get
And you tell me to never fret
You’re always there to shine down on me
And to surround me with your delicacy
I wish upon you all the time
For that is why I wrote this rhyme
I miss you when I can’t see you
You can’t imagine the pain I go through
So I looked for a star
As beautiful as you are
But I never found one…….

YOu are like the very 1st person I have "talked" to about looking at the stars secretly at night...lol....it's nice. :)

Abotu the shooting stars-Ok, it may be a lot, but you can do it. Try looking at them, first of all, and, of you get any ideas, write theim down. Gather up your ideas/fellings?whatever, and write a poem. These are my suggestions. I hope they will be helpful for you.

Stars are beautiful, especially during the winter(for some reason..lol). I absolutely CANNOT imaginr the night sky without the stars that twinkle so....it would be just like a dark, boring ceiling(except the moon).

You should write a poem about shooting stars.

Thanks! And yes, I do that sometimes...I think that stars are so beautiful, especially when there are enough to light up the night sky :)

I like this poem too, not only cause of what it says, but bec ause I can kind of relate to it. Every night, especially during the spring, there is this one star that apprears in the night sky. i'd secretly go to the window, and make a wish. Whenever it isn't there I'm liike "where did you go, buddy?!?" Does anyone else do this?
