Lucky Star Lyrics
You must be my Lucky Star
'Cause you shine on me wherever you are
I just think of you and I start to glow
And I need your light
And baby you know
Starlight, starbright first star I see tonight

The lyrics that touch me most about this song are..."You must be my lucky star
cause you make the darkness seem so far
and when I'm lost you'll be my guide
I just turn around and you're by my side"
and of course, the chorus...
"Star-light, star-bright, first star I see tonight, star-light, star-bright, make everything alright, star-light, star-bright, first star I see tonight...
I used to say that (in my mind) prayer, every night (the chorus) even before this song was popular...that is probably why it was so awe inspiring to me. When I was about 8, in 78 (yes, that dates me) I would swing out in my back yard and wait for the first star of the evening. I would keep going long into the night, but I would always start by saying the "star-light, star-bright" poem and a prayer.
From age 10, I had a lot of losses...my father, my best friend, my grandfather, another best friend, my mother, another grandfather, another friend (actually 2...one was decapitated in a motorcycle accident. I don't mean to get too graphic, but, that was my life...all before I reached 19.
Even during all the losses, I always knew that God was there, watching...I also knew He wouldn't interfere in my life, not because He couldn't, but because I have free will and, like a child, when learning to walk, or ride a bike...I may fall down and get hurt from time to time, but eventually, everything works out the way it is supposed to.
I have never doubted that God is there, mainly because I can sometimes feel His presence, but also because if I doubt too much, I wouldn't have been able to overcome the extreme depression that followed me through my childhood and teenage years.
My thought is that if I am right and God exists (as I know He does) then I win, if I am wrong and this is all a farce, I will never know...so, which is better, living with hope that I will someday see my loved ones again, or living with no hope at all:)
Anyhow,I am now married, for 20 plus years and have 3 awesome kids. As much as I want to protect "my babies", I can't always...I have to let them make their own decisions and sometimes...mistakes. It hurts, but I will always be there to help them overcome, to lift them up, and to help them be who they want to be.
So, whether it be God, or a parent, or a mentor, to me this song embodies someone who loves and takes care of another...someone who is always there and tries to make "everything alright" even when it isn't.
