She dared to hope, she dared to dream.
She held a promise in her heart,
A hint of starlight in the dark.
The stars burned out, and in the dark
She lost the promise of her dream,
Ignored the promptings of the heart.
The hope of stars can pierce the heart.
She heard the promise of the dark,
Dared to step out into the dream.
She gave her heart to dark and dream.
