Her battle

Star light star bright so many stars I’ve seen tonight
I wish they would express my might
how stars engage upon my plight

To brighten up the day for her
with confident expression I will defer
they fill her world with lots of hope
of powers she had to help her cope

With what’s before her every day
to battle and conquer in any way
trials and tribulations sent her way
lets hope she battles another day

But if it’s figured it’s not her time
to fight these battles let’s hit rewind
let’s hope she gets there with gracious spines
and hope she knows the stars did shine.

Upon her now and way back when
she fought the fight of strongest of men
her heart atoned for all her sins
lets hope her fight comes to an end
