Shall I Compare Thee


Shall I compare thee to a bright star.

Thou art more beautiful and more bright.

And yet I see you but your still too far.

And to reach you I would put up a fight .

Even though thou might sometimes come falling down.

And thee might vanish from my eyes forever.

And soon your bright lights will shatter and breakdown.

Chance of meeting again might be never.

But when I see thee thou shall always shine.

Nor shall thee fall in my eyes.

Nor shall I compare thee to a new design.

When thou is bright I will never say goodbye.

So long as men can see, and stars can shine.

So long bright star, and forever so divine.
