Guiding Star by Sheena Jain
Updated: Mar 7
In the well of my half-slept half-woken dreams I hear the echo of my deepest thoughts The earth seems to rise and I fly to the moon Through a million stars that say my name
I see memories running by in zig zag streets While I walk alongside a bed of periwinkles It's a long road with lots of turns And a million questions cross my mind
Where will you take me, I ask the unending horizon I get no answer but a guardian angel appears 'Keep moving', it whispers, 'and the stars will light up your way'
The light guides me to an ocean I catch my reflection in the sparkling water And I see a little girl with a glint in her eye Chasing is not my nature but neither is giving up
I jump in and find myself floating on the clouds And my body feels the divine softness I clutch my pillow and pull over my duvet And rest in a weightless stupor
