My Star

At evening when I go to bed
I raise my curtain high
Enough to see a little star
That twinkles in the sky.

Of all the other stars that shine
I think I like it best;
It's just a little baby star,
Much smaller than the rest.

It's such a happy little star,
And friendly as can be;
I know each time it twinkles
That it's laughing right at me.

I never mind it any more
When Nurse takes 'way the light;
My little star looks down on me,
And watches through the night.
