Hold close your stars,
Keep them tucked safe away 
in the palm of your hand.
And when you wish upon them,
Wish them not away.
For bright stars come few and far between.
Cast them not upon the tumultuous sea of night,
For, as is oft the case with such things, 
they drift far from sight.
Leaving your night pale in their absence.
