Written In The Stars


(Inspired by the movie “Winter’s Tale” based from a novel by Mark Helprin))

They say for each person

There is a certain Miracle from within

And you are meant to be just for one person

As time draws to a close to meeting the One,

The Universe and your Spirit Guides are on your side

To help you fulfill your One True Destiny.


It’s written in the stars

And before you know it, I am coming to hold your hand

You may not know now but soon you’ll get it somehow

I may have bumped into you along life’s journey,

But you were too preoccupied with your own story

That you didn’t notice me passing you by.


If in this life, we have to say goodbye

As my soul reincarnates, I’ll meet you again in the next,

When our eyes lock as we cross our paths once more

You will know in your heart that it was me – your Destiny,

Just look at the stars on a beautiful night such as this

And know that the time is near to feel eternal bliss.


It’s written in the stars

For even when True Love is lost,

Your soul will bleed for a meaning in your life

But though the inevitable happens, searching for your One True Destiny remains

If we are yet to discover our One True Miracle,

Even time may defeat itself in order for you to see me in another lifetime.
