Shining Star
A friend is like a shining star,
coming out where ever you are.
When the darkness is all there is to greet you
your star will be there to always lead you.
Shining the way for you to see,
the path you need forever to be.
So when the darkness falls before your eyes,
your shining star is there, just look toward the skies.
