The Stars Are All Above Us

Van Gogh's Starry Night Over the Rhone

'Starry Night over the Rhone' by Vincent Van Gogh

Around the world tonight,
The stars are all above us.
Me in darkness, others in light,
But the stars are all above us.
People eating, drinking, sleeping,
Around the world tonight.
People fighting, laughing, weeping,
But the stars are all above us.
People cross the surface,
Around the world tonight,
Underground or in the skies,
But the stars are all above us.
Life is forming, growing, dying,
Around the world tonight,
Life strengthening or tiring,
The stars are all above us.
Sounds and smells are million,
Around the world tonight.
Tastes and textures myriad,
But the stars are all above us.
Their light is pouring down,
From centuries away,
Other worlds are shown,
By the stars that are above us.
And as we come and go,
Around the world tonight,
The stars will always know,
And they’ll always be above us.
