Star Of Heaven to Soldier Richard has a magical gift 
A lover turns to a star to grant him a gift 
A magician amazes everyone with his gift 

Star Of Heaven (Martin verse) 

Oh star of heaven pure delight
Make one more dream come true tonight
A moment by your bless├ęd light
A wonder to make all things right
A world impassioned by your glow
Such Joy is felt within your flow
One final wish a heart would know
A memory might you bestow
What splendor would dance with delight
Imagined blossoms endless flow
In paradise which few may know
A wonder only you make right
If ever hope should lose your glow
Forever’s sorrows start tonight
And there is no more use for light
What else could emptiness bestow
My wonder of everything right
The reason that I feel so light
Will you grant me your gift tonight
Oh star of heaven pure delight 

What star is being addressed in this Martin verse? Before addressing this question, where did Martin verse come from? I created this form in 2011. I was inspired by the symphony musical form. A rhyming set of words is introduced. A second set of rhyming words is brought into play. The two sets of rhyming words are mixed together. The original words are brought back in reverse order. As to the initial question, as one might suspect, the star refers to at least three things (in one): a star, a lady and a dream. 

A little game I enjoyed playing with Arlene was a "surprise evening" (it really didn't have a name). I would leave little clues throughout the day, where I thought Arlene was sure to find them. If I was successful Arlene would be ready (dressed and all) for what the surprise was. The surprise might be anything from a dinner, the theater, a trip to a spa, a night out withe girls and more. Arlene thoroughly enjoyed this game. It was a way to add a little more excitement to a great evening. 

What does this little game have to do with the poem? Nothing in itself. The game did require a little insight on the part of Arlene and myself to be successful. The poem required a little skill to blend three things into one idea. If we think deeply into a kiss, there is desire, a message and a person. Add to these a phone message ("I'll kiss you when I get home") and "Oh boy". 

May our love stay forever young. Love in itself never changes. It is humans nature that gets things confused. We, the dreamers, can touch upon our star. We can bask in our blessing. It is up to us... through us... that possibilities become real. But we knew that. So let us continue our dream, and enjoy.

Love is one form of magic 

One of the most famous illusionists was Baron Wolfgang von Kempelen. In 1770 he devised an automated chess player that took on all challengers. Benjamin Franklin played against the machine in 1783 and lost. Today Magicians still manage to stay one step ahead of imaginations and continue to amaze us. One of these is a 25 year old magician. named Richard Jones. Richard used his skill to Wow the imaginations of the judges of 2016's episode of Britain's Got Talent. 
We can try to figure out how these illusions were done or we can take in the performance. "Soldier Richard has a magical gift for the Judges | Week 2 Auditions | Britain’s Got Talent 2016"

However much I might try to expound 
or explain Love, when I come to Love itself, 
I am ashamed of my explanations... 
Love alone can explain the mysteries 
of love and lovers.
