twinkle, twinkle, little star

stars, stars..
so many of them
and i'm a kid again
just a handful
and i'd hide them
under my pillow
and go to sleep
with a smile.
but people say
stars are huge
and i can't have
even the smallest.
but my toy-house
is so dark
all i need is
a teeny twinkle.
and so i hide
behind my palms
and look at them
hoping and hoping
one of them
will humor me
and come down
to light my world.
