Bright Stars

Bright stars are all too far away to touch.
Is life too dark, or is it all too much?
Too distant in the future or the past?
What god would make a universe so vast?

The closest stars seem just within my reach;
I want a warm and brilliant kiss from each;
But even they are still too far away.
Why can’t their light, within my darkness stay?

Which of us here has ever touched a star?
Why do we seal our lights inside a jar?
Why do we try to touch the brilliant sky?
And seal our little lights away to die?

To god, the universe is just a spark;
Stars give us light, within this stretch of dark.
