... and Stars

The stars tonight shine just for you,
Looking down at you gazing up,
Whispering the promises of today and the dreams
Of tomorrow in their wishes for us.

Undulating beauty rippling in a sea of twinkling-
Vast as the unknown universe of your soul-
They are beacons to the angels drifting through
Sleepless nights, watching intently as your life unfolds.

They’re there, even when we can’t see, but listen
Closely: the future is this moment- right now-
And time is nothing but the construct of foolish men
Who weren’t lovers and never knew how.

If they wish they dream they can they do,
And each is alive with Heaven’s deepest revelations
Looking down at you gazing up, then
The stars tonight shine just for you.

Artist's Description

My girl was having dreams that made her feel bad about herself when she awoke. I wrote this to let her know that she is a special beauty and that the infinite ocean of stars gives her their singular attention.
