Twinkle & The Power of a Single Star – III

Part III – Stars, Angels and Dreams

Dedicated to the Star, the Angel and the Dream


Behold the power of a single K-pop star when one sees Jung Soo Yeon’s sizzling rendition on Christmas Eve 2011 of the Disney classic When You Wish Upon A Star

It’s the performance, the visuals 🙂 and the lyrics of course :). The lyrics go as follows:-

When you wish upon a star
Makes no difference who you are
Anything your heart desires will come to you
If your heart is in your dreams
No request is too extreme
When you wish upon a star as dreamers do

Fate is kind, she brings to those who love the sweet fulfillment of their secret longing
Like a bolt out of the blue, fate steps in and sees you through
When you wish upon a star
Your dreams come true

When you wish upon a star
Makes no difference who you are
Anything your heart desires will come to you
If your heart is in your dreams
No request is too extreme
When you wish upon a star your dreams come true


What shows up at night?
Other than stars not many other things
Except for lovely angels and our long-awaited dreams
Stars, Angels and Dreams, is there a link?
The more you think, the more so it seems

When you wish upon a star, it is an angel that hears you
And she quietly sets about a myriad of cues
creating a series of unexpected steps
To bring about a difference in view

Angels are small in size but big in heart
And they always try to do their part
Small like a star’s twinkle to the eye
Let down your guard and they will just slip by

Kindness and charity is their self-trap

They aim to put others on the map

They move around much having lightness in their step
Bringing everyone blessings like a tap

An Angel worked hard to make things happen
She was probably acting at the direction of heaven
And when dreams come true, despite our problems and quirks
Due regard must be had to the Angel’s work

Heavens are where from the Angels come
Yet looking to the sky, there seems to be none
We can look up and yet can’t tell what we missed
Until the Angel appears in our midst


When you believe in a dream, you should reach for the stars…

An opportunity for change confronted me in due time
Bringing about the need to count my dimes
On the one hand there was a tussle within me
On the other hand was the comfort of familiarity

Stars being my constant gazing
Make it hard for me to keep my grounding
The pull to reach for the stars comes from the longing
And gravity works against us through our belongings

For eons I kept my feet close to the ground
And now I start to feel my heart pound
As I part with my roof to reach above my head
To tell the truth, I am truly a little afraid

To take a plunge to reach for the stars
Is good for the soul but not exactly a must
But true living is about getting closer to your dreams
Even if it means moving towards the other extreme

If I lose the roof over my head
Will there be thatches or tents in place instead?
Having the sky as an awning
Need not necessarily be a bad thing
As all the stars into view it brings
Except and unless when there is perennial clouding

Stargazing of whatever nature comes at a cost
But the cost of which should not be reason a cause be lost
In the desert where there are no clouds block my vision
Is truly the place of calling and where to be for all seasons

I part with the roof and head to the desert
After having done my sums and careful research
In Tucson, Arizona the deserts are abound
And naturally the costs of travel will inevitably mount

How difficult is it to reconcile?
For a man to give up his entire house
Just to climb up a hundred plus yards
And cover maybe over twenty plus miles?

Prudence requires a parting with toys
No more room for pet peeves and childish boys
Only with luck and blessings can things fall into place
If things go awry, my lovely ponies I can only hope to retrace

Does seeing clearer mean getting any closer?
Are sight and distance linked? that is the poser
What can I make of all such dreams
Can they come true? Yes it so seems

Dreams can come true
But only if you can ride out the blues
Putting together all the nuts, bolts and screws
And making sure that nothing can come loose
