Poem: Wishing on a Star

I originally wrote this poem on December 22, 2020, in response to reading “Make a Wish to a Star and It Will Come True“, by Carla Milho, a very lovely lady and talented writer from Lisbon, Portugal. I then posted it on my site a few days later, as part of a compilation. And, now…freestanding.

⭐ 	A light to the east,
	After dark
	In the sky.

🕊 	A dove is released,
	And my wish
	Came to fly.

🙏 	Bound for the heavens,
	With trust
	In a prayer.

❤️ 	The woman I love,
	With hope
	We will share.
