Prompt: Staying in the shadows of someone you love…letting them take the limelight, just because it makes you happy.


I know that I am a star
I shine, brightly most of the time
But there are more stars
In the sky with me
And instead of outshining them
I know to hide my light
I know when to dim
Because I’ve a friend
A star like her, shines brightly too
And her light is brighter
So much brighter than mine
Watching her shine
Watching her glow
Feeling the warmth of her presence
Let’s me truly know
That being a star
Is not about shining bright constantly
But about knowing
When to let another’s glow
Shine bright
Shine brighter next to you

Wonderful. Thank you
