“It looks deep,” I said, face turned up to the sky Looking so high I thought I would float away. You held my hand, And paced up and down the driveway Trying to see every star and planet Above us. You were giddy in that way you get When curiosity Has taken over Your body.
Two falling stars Faded into the darkness Like a deep sigh, I pointed them out to you Moments too late.
Two wishes, All to myself.
And both of them were Something beautiful and secret About you.
