Igo out on my roof

in the middle of the night

and look up to the sky

to stare at the bright lights.

***

Tonight they seem so close

that I'm sure that I can touch them,

but they're always out of reach

no matter how far I stretch.

***

But these thigs that shine so bright

and so beautiful at night

are meant to be left untouched

Our hands are too tainted

and our eyes are too weak

to go where the stars are

no matter how tempting

it may be.

***

Some things are better

when they are left alone,

but they're always filling our hearts

with feelings from above.
