My Guiding Star

by Harshita Das aged 11

You shine high above the clouds
You glitter in the coat of the sky
And you hide behind the clouds
You are my guiding star
You will guide me through the dense, dark night
You will show me the way
And put me back on track
When I feel lost
For so many lives of sailors you have saved
Across the ocean and beyond
And, so many travellers look at you
For guidance
Gleaming in the sky
I know you will always be with me
And others
And when another soul so far away
Stares at you and smiles
Then you know, you have our gratitude
For you are our guiding star
