Jars of Stars

I floated out in space
And collected the stars
Pouring the Milky Way
Into many, many jars

I came back onto Earth
With the beautiful silver stuff
Put them carefully in my room
I thought it was enough

But somehow, 
The stars soon lost their glow
Because it is only in true darkness and space
That they shine bright, and fade slow
