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.
