One Star Less

by Miguel Gonzalez  

I set a gaze upon an evening sky

The quiet splendor of a starry night

How infinite stars make the darkness shy

How my eyes are awed by the heavensí light

In silence, a question now comes to mind

If a single star were to fade and die

Would we on the earth be able to find

One star less amidst an infinite sky

A twinkle has gone yet many remained

In the heavens, stars and in darkness, light

My vision still awed by what seemed unchanged

At splendor still kept by a starry night

Yet I realize what the truth contest

The sky is kept greater, not one star less
