Have You Ever? by Carolynn Mitchell

Have you ever wished
upon a star...
Dreamed of someone or
somewhere far beyond
your reach...
Have you ever cried in vain, with each tear
taking away a little part
of your heart,
leaving sadness to grow...

Have you ever laid awake
at night, unable to sleep,
feeling your life wasn't
the part missing; love.
Leaving you to wonder
will love ever come you way and stay...
Again you find
yourself wishing upon
a star...
