| WISHING ON A STAR
A lone figure sitting under moonlit skies
A twinkling star reflecting in blue eyes
Long hair blowing in the gentle breeze
Buckskin covered arms hugging pulled up knees
A faraway look on the handsome face
A soul older than its years, thanks to the human race
The breeze catches a sigh as it leaves his lips
The night the only witness as the shaggy head dips.
A thoughtful look crosses shadowed features
Nature and life his only teachers
The eyes rise up capturing the star in their gaze
The man hoping the light will clear his minds haze.
A soft Texan drawl fills the night air
As the lone figure speaks, laying his soul bare.
Wanted t thank ya fer leadin me the way that ya did
reckon ya figgered Id spent nuff time, with m soul well
Was wanderin, lost and broken, fer hell, cant recall how long
Whatever I did seemed t turn out wrong.
Then I found mself sweepin and feelin a pull
Looked up and right theres what made my life full.
Two haunted green eyes, starin right back at me
Knew I found m destiny, it was plain t see.
In a twist of fate, brought on by yer hand
I found mself a brother, as we both made a stand.
After him came others, until our number became seven
A band of brothers, brought together, by a gentle shove from heaven.
So, Im sittin here and thinkin that Its a long time
To thank ya fer what ya done fer me, ya made m life anew.
With six friends to share m time with, its like a brand new start
Im beholden ya figgered Im worth it, Im grateful in m
I done lots o things ya should hate me fer, and Im tryin
t make amends
But still, ya reward m badness, with six life long friends.
Ill work til m handsr bloodied, an Ill
give ya m right arm
Iffen ya give me one more wish this night, and keep these men from harm.
The soft Texan voice then faltered, his eyes glistened with unshed tears
As he bared his soul to heaven, and brought out all his fears.
The blue orbs grew wide in wonder, and his heart clenched in his chest
As the star that he had whispered to grew brighter than the rest.
He swallowed down his wonder, could say not another word
As he realised his heart wrenching plea, had definitely been heard.
He felt someone beside him, and turned his head to see
And smiled at his healer friend, who put a hand upon his knee.
Vin, yuh need to come inside, youre still not fully well
no grouchin now, ya get sick again, an Chrisll give yuh
The young man nodded slowly, as he was helped onto his feet
His gaze watching his friend lead the way, inside his clinic, small and neat.
He walked towards the doorway, and faltered in his steps
Turned his eyes once more up to the star, emotion in their depths.
A small knowing smile touched his lips, and he nodded his head once more
Then turned away, walked inside, and quietly closed the door.
