twinkle, twinkle

twinkle, twinkle, little star
i still wonder what you are
all our petty science sees
leaves us still such mysteries

up above my world so high
atoms fusing in the sky
forging life sustaining space
light years from this time and place

like the blazing sun of earth
your existence traced from birth
tells us something of design
but not all to why you shine

we, mere travelers in the dark
born ourselves from some great spark
marvel in the deep of night
drawn to distant points of light

questioning our hearts, our souls
wishing on our dreams and goals
sensing there is magic still
a voice, a source, a god, a will

twinkle, twinkle, little star
though i know not what you are
long as you shall shine your light
i will say my prayers each night
