Watching the Stars
I stopped to watch the stars last night.
I had to
They were up there, unreachable and I longed to touch them.
I had just left you, you see
And was feeling full of your wonder
The stars filled the sky, and reminded me
Of the sparkle in your eyes
Of the cascading sheen of your hair
And I longed to feel your touch.
The stars sang to me, last night
Of love and longing, of beauty and grace
They sang of you and touched my heart
The stars shone down on me last night
Cloaking me in their embrace
My open heart reached out
And found a heavenly goddess
Atop her mountain home
I sat and watched the stars last night
And saw your face aglow
Love engulfed me gently
As I snuggled neath that starry coverlet
I floated up into your arms
And felt your warmth and marvel
A smile touched upon your lips
And I dissolved.
Conquered by love’s honeyed breath
I had to stop and watch the stars
And dream of you once more
For I was yet again reminded
How truly beautiful you are.
