Night Skies

-

My heart is broken

I wait by night

For you, my star,

To make the sky bright.

-

Look out the window

Into the frosty air

Breath clings to the pane

Drawing pictures there.

-

Snow on the ground

Glitters in the light

Like tiny little people

Awake late on this night.

-

I see the moon

She's laughing at me

and I long to be her,

Because she is free.

-

The stars play their games

Shining in the inky black

Little reminders of hopeful times

Memories I would never give back.
