Million Stars

Poem By Randy McClave

There are a million stars up in the sky
But, only one star in a million attracts my eye,
Even though they all shimmer and they all shine
There is only one star that I want as mine.
So, when I wish upon the stars at night
I wish for only one to always to be in my sight,
So, upon that one and only star I will make my wish
Sadly to other stars and people I must seem selfish.
But, I indeed am not a selfish or a thoughtless man
There is one star and wish for everyone that will and can,
When I was a young boy I found my one and only star
It was shining down and upon me from afar.
Of the million stars I then chose just that one
It became the star that I make my wishes upon,
When at night I go out and up at the sky I do stare
I look for my star and hoping it is still hanging there.
Sometimes I will lie on my back and I will count the stars
Happily I will think to myself as I know that they are ours,
And that one star will be mine until that day that I die
It is the one and only star shining for me up in the sky.

Guard Your Heart

Guard your heart as if it were gold
Guard it from thieves, so it won't be stolen or sold,
Protect it surely as you would protect your love
Keep it safe and protected and always there of.

Then He Cried

When he left his mother and the doctor spanked his hide
In that delivery room he then first cried,
But, that cry that he uttered so proudly and loud
Was a proclamation to all, that he'll make his mother proud.


Victory is ours!
Said one crow to the other,
As they soared in the sky above.
For below them they had spied

Boxer's Chess

I am no man's rook
I go wherever that I look,
No one controls my every move
What I do, only I approve.

I Am My Father's Son

I Am My Father's Son
That is who I am,
Though I am, still his child
I am still a man.
