Keeping a Night Sky Alive

Published by

Shooting stars keep a night sky alive
And calm dark waters are rippled by a feeding fish
With our back against the dewy grass, you whisper,
“They don’t last, so make a wish.”

They burn so bright, and then drop out of sight
I would spend a lifetime to take it all in
Maybe our fire’s done burning
And like those stars, we’ve fallen

Our past sings through swaying trees
And words break silence like a distant wind chime
Maybe this is only the beginning
And we will burn brighter in time

So, tonight I share my wish
To the girl with the broken smile
I’ll throw it all in the water
And ask her to stay a while
