The Starry Path
Written & Contributed By
Shannah M. Helman

Close now, your eyes, my dear old friend
And slowly go to sleep
For when you open them again
The Starry Path you'll seek.

And up into the night you'll run
And gallop over stars
Into pastures all of cloud
Restrained by neither gate nor bar.

The Starry Path you now must take
And cross over to the land
Where others just like you now run
In a beautiful, ghostly band.

But please, old friend, I beg of you
Don't leave that cloud-filled place
Nor think you wait in vain
Until the Starry Path I take
To be with you again.
