Wishing On Stars

written by: OurSacredHonor

Wishing on stars
Has gotten me this far
So I might as well believe
So I might as well believe
Like headlights of passing cars
Or lightning bugs in empty jars
I might as well believe

You said "believing's like breathing"
And somehow you were always right
So I wish I may, I wish I might
Have this wish I wish tonight

At night the sky
Still comes alive
So I might as well believe
Its like storytime
For you and I
So we might as well believe

You said "believing's like breathing"
And somehow you were always right
So I wish I may, I wish I might
Have this wish I wish tonight

This is an open invitation
To remind me who you are
Please, don't be another passing plane
Oh, how I need you to be a star

So when the dark gives way to dawn
And all your wishing stars are gone
Please, don't worry for too long
The sun's still a star to wish upon

i have to agree this could very well be a song.
i like the the very last stanza best though..cant put my finger on it but i really like it. its like never losing hope to me.

I agree with justthatgirl18. The last stanza sort-of... pulls you. It's as if it's saying "Stay true to what you believe, don't lose grasp of your dreams."

You're amazing. ;]

'You said "believing's like breathing"
And somehow you were always right
So I wish I may, I wish I might
Have this wish I wish tonight'

Loved it. Excellent work. It has a very fluid feel, and the imagery is good. The first stanza opens up with almost a feeling of indifference, and then, the second to last stanza brings the subject to a desire to believe. The last stanza expresses a firm confidence that it isnt in vain, and encourages others to do the same. The format is great. Good work!

The entire poem has just got it, what would be the "Chorus"
"You said "believing's like breathing"
And somehow you were always right
So I wish I may, I wish I might
Have this wish I wish tonight"

Its pure genious. The whole thing is just written out the way life is, with depression, and faith, hope,and just good human nature. I love this Poem.

My favorite part was in the end when the stars are gone, the sun is still a star to wish upon. I love the message. Very nice work! :D
