Wide Awake

This is a note for those who dream:

Twinkle, little star

The sky is your playground

Soon your name will dance on hearts

And your story sung from hilltops;

The story of how this star outshone the sun


Twinkle, little star

Chase your dreams like a lover woos his beloved

Speak life into your passions

And fuel your dreams with your sweat

Soon your tear-stained pillows will dry up

You will feast on the fruits of your labour


Twinkle, little star

Tomorrow is laced with kept promises

This desert will become gold dust at your feet

This mountain will become the pebble in your sling

Guard your dreams from the darkness

And shine with all your might

For soon, the world will see your light
