The Song That Inspired Me to Write a Poem

Yes, I know this may sound ‘cheesy’ but doesn’t matter what people have to say because at the end of the day what or how I feel and be able to express it in words is more important.

I used to write poems but it’s not just something that you can write at random occasions or for no reasons at all. There has to be a reason, a purpose, a special someone or people behind it.

As I was working, Ed Sheeran’s “All of the Stars” was playing in my Youtube list and it’s the first time I’ve ever heard it, although it’s been released on the radio like a year ago. The melody was good. It sounded romantic. And then I Googled the lyrics, oh man I fell in love! And a light bulb popped out of my head and I knew what to do – I should write a poem. But no, he’s not my inspiration for this poem! Don’t get me wrong, he’s one of my new favorite singer-song writer these days – he’s really good! I don’t even care what he looks like, but I’d definitely scream in excitement to see and hear him sing live. But this poem goes to someone else, Wolf*

All of the Stars by Ed Sheeran

It’s just another night
And I’m staring at the moon
I saw a shooting star
And thought of you
I sang a lullaby
By the waterside and knew
If you were here,
I’d sing to you
You’re on the other side
As the skyline splits in two
I’m miles away from seeing you
I can see the stars
From America
I wonder, do you see them, too?

So open your eyes and see
The way our horizons meet
And all of the lights will lead
Into the night with me
And I know these scars will bleed
But both of our hearts believe
All of these stars will guide us home

I can hear your heart
On the radio beat
They’re playing ‘Chasing Cars’
And I thought of us
Back to the time,
You were lying next to me
I looked across and fell in love
So I took your hand
Back through lamp lit streets I knew
Everything led back to you
So can you see the stars?
Over Amsterdam
You’re the song my heart is
Beating to

So open your eyes and see
The way our horizons meet
And all of the lights will lead
Into the night with me
And I know these scars will bleed
But both of our hearts believe
All of these stars will guide us home

And, oh, I know
And oh, I know, oh
I can see the stars
From America

 

Here’s the poem:
Star and Wishes

Wish I could write a song for you
Just like how “All of the Stars” was written
But I’m not that good, so here’s one for you

We may be thousand miles away
Some things we cannot explain brought us together
We always find a way

Be reminded of the stars you see at night in the sky
They shine and twinkle, I’m thinking of you
Darling, you know I never lie

Though thousands may come out when darkness appears
There’s only one star I have to keep
It’s you that save me from all my fears

Every night you get my kisses
My fantasy and reality, see you soon
All are true, and these are my wishes

Love, Anna
