Poetry: Lost Star

By Monica C. Voskamp


Wandering galaxies

Lost star you are

Can’t find a place

To settle your heart.


Can’t find a home

To tend each night.

Can’t find a man

To love just right.

Can’t find a child

To become mine.


Can’t find, can’t find

Lost star wandering



She is restless

She is probing

For something

Beyond her soul.

For something

Beyond her time.


Wandering star,

Don’t wander too long

Don’t wander too far

For even the stars

Have a destined time.


Find your place, lone star

Mark the night sky

Before you burn out.


Always hope. Always believe. Always love. ❤

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. ❤
