I alight on a star
it’s farther than I’ve ever been before
a thousand miles away from you
I transfix my eyes
on all the galaxies next door
they are reminiscent of a time before
our love was larger than the sun in the sky
within my heart you always did shine
like a star
I hang my hopes and dreams
on the moon
while I recline
into your arms, awaiting the night of the morning tide
