Heaven's Canvas

In the blackness of the night
The creamy stars twinkle
Brilliant white against
Heaven's ebony canvas

So quiet, it chills me
All I can hear is
The sounds of your breath
Your heartbeat

The moon shines before us
A white rose framed by glitter
A watchful eye that holds
The secrets of Mother Earth

So still, until you move
Taking my hand
Innocence emanating from you
As your eyes stare unblinkingly

So we lay, in the night
Never saying a word
But rather, we listen
To the whispering of the moon
