Thinking Of You

By: Tessa Chan-A-Shing

Despite the darkness that surrounds me
I always see a light–
A star, directly above,
Glittering and shining bright.

It reminds me of your smile
Which would always brighten my day.
I can only picture your face
As you live thousands of miles away.

So, every time I need you
I look up to the sky,
Searching for that star
That reminds me of your smile.

When I see that star
I hear you whisper in my ear,
"Remember, I promised you
I’ll always be there."

Then I can smile
Even though we’re far apart,
Because I know you’re here with me
And I’m forever in your heart.
