The Stars Went Out

Stars used to join in the moonlight dance

Wishing on them gave us a chance

To believe dreams really do come true

And sometimes they truly do

Other times, they disappear

Only to show on nights so clear

But even on those lit starry nights

We don’t notice them shining so bright

Because we are inward, fighting battles

We’re in chains of sorrow and struggle, shackled

What night did the stars go out?

What must we do to bring them back about?
