Stars
~~~~~
As I stand under the night sky
I stare in awe at the stars
And I wonder
How could there possibly be so many?
Covering the universe
Twinkling bright little lights
Thousands
Incomprehensible

Sometimes it's just too much
I want to drink it in
And bottle up this moment
So I can keep it forever
And re-live it when I need it

And as I stand with my arms outstretched
I start to spin
I want to hold the whole world
And can't understand my happiness

Then, slowly, I stop spinning
And fall to the ground
And I can feel the earth turning beneath me
As I stare wide-eyed
At the stars
