Light A Star To Guide Us

Sometimes I wonder why 
you seemed to take so long
to send a saviour to our earth 
when things had gone so wrong.

So many years of killing, 
and terror for the young.
So much hate, destruction, 
so little hope left hung
upon a star.

Some of us were watching
and noticed when you came
some knew where to find you 
and some even knew your name. 

It’s been such a long time since,
we now hang our heads in shame
for after all you did for peace 
it seems we’re still the same.

And I wonder why you’re waiting
and what you are waiting for. 
If you’ll soon stop all this killing, 
all this terror like before.

Will you light a star to guide us
will you bring us peace again,
will we know where we can find you and
I wonder, will we know your name.
