As the world darkens,
don't forget to count the stars,
you'd be surprised to see so many of them
shining a little brighter tonight,
you might possibly lose count.
And not just the ones in the night sky,
but the ones hard at work on the ground -
the doctors, the nurses, the janitors,
the police and army forces,
the garbage collectors, the supermarket workers,
the ones who deliver our meals and our mails,
the ones who deliver love in tough times,
the ones risking their lives,
the ones shining bright behind silent twinkles
to save us.
