Syndic No.42 ~Anna Keiko

If I Were A Star

Written by Anna Keiko

Translated from the Chinese by Germain Droogenbroodt

Narrated by Bill Wolak

If I were a star

I would wait for you at your window at night 

If I were a cloud in summer

I would soften the warmth of sun above you. 

If I were the wind,

I would gently blow your face when you sweat. 

If I were a bird

I would sing for you by day and by night 

But I am but an ant

longing to fly like an eagle

seeing you from the sky and settle close to you

If I were a star . . .
