Liner Notes: 

Skirmish prompt: Bright Star

Dedicated to all of you, the wonderfully supportive, nurturing, and generous FAWM friends - you are bright stars in this universe

Lyrics: 

bright stars and rainbows

V1
like the
bright stars
in vast dark
galaxies

they let
their light
shine down so
brilliantly

they lift
us all
high almost
magically

like the
bright stars
in vast dark
galaxies

C
bright stars
and rainbows
draw us in
they give
us new hope
to transcend
the dark gray
times that
we may
sometimes
dwell in

oh, how I cherish
bright star and
rainbow friends

V2
like full
rainbows
on long gray
afternoons

they bring
joyful
and peaceful
interludes

they share
their awe
beauty and
gratitude

like full
rainbows
on long gray
afternoons

C
bright stars
and rainbows
draw us in
they give
us new hope
to transcend
the dark gray
times that
we may
sometimes
dwell in

oh, how I cherish
bright star and
rainbow friends

B
I long to be
your bright star
I long to be
your rainbow
I long to be
your trusted friend
who you can
count on until
time’s end

C
bright stars
and rainbows
draw us in
they give
us new hope
to transcend
the dark gray
times that
we may
sometimes
dwell in

oh, how I cherish
bright star and
rainbow friends

A beautiful statement of love to our community here. I feel the same way. Love the term "rainbow friends."

Lovely sentiments and I like the inclusion of rainbows! So many great descriptions and the bridge goes another step to reach out. And those rhymes give it some great energy. Nicely done!

Yes they are a real life cycle thing! Great hope lift the world but then slowly fade and die! Nice one!

this is so heartwarming and sweet, from the title right to the last line! such great imagery in the wordplay, not usually my cup of listening tea, but this actually did maybe make my heart grow just a little bit bigger, I just hope it's not a medical condition, yet still contagious Biggrin
really great stuff!

There's reciprocation here in the bridge, of that brightness.
You always have such vivid imagery in your lyrics. I can see all this visually in my mind. Everything is bright and colorful, like a cartoon.
Its a nice feeling.
You've always been very encouraging to me on my silly little songs, and I appreciate you, who are also one of the bright stars and rainbows.

This is really beautiful Liz! And also, technically delightful in the structure and form! I love how you've repeated the first line of each verse at the end of that verse!! Kinda like a built-in refrain! Really strong chorus and that bridge is quite a treat! Love the sentiment in these lyrics! Great work!
