The Starlight Child

I close my eyes to see you
I pick you out in the noise
Like my favourite poem
The twinkle in your eyes
Hides secrets from the world
I can imagine your laughter
As the clouds move to stage
The performance of galaxies
You’re the words to a blank page
My three a.m cup of tea I crave
I have seen you stumbling as faces
Changed but I knew you’d climb
The ladder by yourself again
So I watched knowing you were
Growing up and I smiled because
You’re my starlight child
