Stars that Color the Night
        Who are the stars? Each pink star in the midnight sky represents the final kiss between two lovers... Seperated by the waves of the sea... or torn from each other's arms by hands of iron.   Each iridescent green star represents the first kiss a newborn baby receives from his mother.   I believe stars never forget the sight of two hearts  who once walked as one... No matter how short or long their journey. These stars are shimmering silver and sparkle like crystals.   When you see a star bathed in sapphire blue think of your first passionate kiss!   Stars in the early morning sky are dressed almost the same as the rainbow that appears in the daylight after the storm. These stars are clothed in coats of many colors. They signal the dawning of a new day with blue skies and new horizons.   This is my loyal friend... Today i must say good-bye. You have lived a long life of faith and joy. I will see you again in the Paradise. These are the stars made of the finest Gold.  
Author's Notes:

Hanane wrote Who Are the Stars! and invited others to follow up where she left how could i resist? She is the inspiration for this piece. The stars stir our imagination, inspire hope, dreams, regrets, memories, the what ifs? and why nots?  they give us a reason to peer into the night recognize and give thanks to our whom we owe our existence along with the stars.

Stars are endlessly inspirational and magical and you have captured that here. :-)

I did find the non use of capital letters a bit of a shame for me...maybe some do not mind but at least I am honest...and you do ask for detailed critique.
Punctuation can make or break a poem but that is my personal opinion.
Lovely otherwise
