Mirror, Mirror in the Star
I saw a golden star one night
Gleaming with peace and grace.
Its glow was warm and oh so bright
I reached up toward its place.
It was too far for me to touch
So I snuggled deep down in bed.
I wanted to be near that star so much
It was dancing around in my head.
Suddenly I was up in the air
Like magical pixie dust!
I soared as high as I could dare.
Get to that star, I must!
Its golden glow drew me near
To the star’s mystical space.
I felt such joy, there was no fear
As I gazed into the star’s face.
Closer I looked, even closer now
For it was a face that I knew well.
The eyes, the nose, the mouth, the brow…
I could now certainly tell.
Like a mirror the star showed me
Its wondrous face was my own.
So curious, I thought, how could this be?
Then the star spoke, “Make it known…”
“Sweet child the face you see is yours
Because you see what you are inside.
Peace and grace your heart adores
Putting all anger and fear aside.
“You were ready when you saw my light
To see your soul deep within.
You glow with warmth and love so bright
It spills out in every grin.
“Go back to bed now, little one
Have sweet dreams and sleep.
Your soul is the shining golden sun
Forever your heart will keep.”
