My astronaut sleeps on a star

Tired from searching planets

for galactic friends

His lonely mission finds only moon

and one sole star, who

winks at him offering comfort

I want to climb up there

be his friend and blow bubbles at the night

but I don’t have a rocket

they’re only for grown-ups

I could use some ladders

point them to the sky

or stand on the top of my neighbour’s tree

Would that bring me near?

I wave to him

knowing my Mum will be here soon

to tuck me up for the night

with all my planet hopping dreams

starring in my head

If only he could see me

he’d lower a rope down

and ask me to climb

Together we could watch the moon smile

Background: Wouldn't it be great if we could climb up to the stars?
