The stars are terribly far away, but we are taught to reach for them

bright burning orbs light years away that teach us every single day

Teach us that no matter what we must burn on

burn on and burn bright so we can illuminate all

Be the guiding light for those who may one day falter and fall

though we may ourselves fall, we must never dim

we must keep going burn on just like them

ever present, ever luminescent

burn bright like a star, for when you do your light reaches so far
