Poetry: ..your hidden stars..

By Monica C. Voskamp


Your stars you can’t find.

The dark has strode in

And covered their shine.


Your smile, so far away,

The pain has overtaken

And plowed you down.


It isn’t fair.

It never is,

When evil wins.


I can’t help but ache

And wish my love

Was enough

To paint stars in your heart,

To line a smile on your face,

To uncover the full beauty you are,

Hiding under all that pain.


I can’t chase down the dark,

I can’t erase the pain,

But I can shine on you,



And I will do it,

Again and again.


Whatever it takes

To see those stars,

To see that smile,

To see your heart.

Love always finds a way.


Always hope. Always believe. Always love. ❤
