We Reached For Stars

We Reachd for Stars is a poem about love written by Canadian poet, Ruth Desjardins

We reached for stars together;

We laughed through autumn rain;

We walked through snowy evenings;

And heard love’s sweet refrain;

We sat in warmest sunshine –

Our dreams alive again.


We reached for stars together;

We dreamed our dreams aloud;

We rode the wind so far and free,

So high above the clouds;

And though we held our love inside,

It made us very proud.


We sang of pride and freedom;

Your fingers touched the strings;

And when the music held us

We had no need for wings;

We reached for stars together,

And dreams were everything.


We flew beyond horizon’s eye

Within the love we kept inside

Together we discovered glory

Told within love’s sweetest story

The memories are mine and yours

A star we’ll hold forever more.
