Come the Twilight

I am but one star
lonely in these heavens
dwindling in the light I cast
where time used is the life I live
and time ahead is to live the dream,
a modest dream reserved for a quiet life
to balance spending years yearning to shine,
spent hoping for sufficient time come the twilight
when this humble star would shine enough to share.
