Sometimes at night.
I look at the glistening sky.
The sky shines bright with thousands of stars.
Each one of them reminds me of you.
One star is your eye, shining when you’re happy.
Another one is your mouth, your pearly teeth when you smile.
Yet another star for your big, blooming heart.
And one more, a flashing star, for your silky laugh.
Sometimes we meet in my dreams.
We hold hands and dance on a road of stars.
We count the stars as we step.
And by the end of the road, I’ve woken up.
These stars and these dreams are all I have.
Since you live across the sea.
But know that I would travel far and wide.
Just to hear your laugh again.
You make me so happy I can barely breathe.
It’s hard to describe the way you make me feel.
Even through poetry.
You leave me wordless.
That’s why this poem.
Is a bit messy.
A bit wild.
Pretty all over the place.
Because there are so few words.
To describe how special.
You are to me.
I know I say it a lot.
But I really do love you.
And the day you said it back.
Was the best day of my life.
These stars and these dreams.
They’re enough for now.
Because one day.
I’ll be there.
Taking a plane across the world.
Just to see you smile.
Then those stars won’t compare.
To the most beautiful sight before me.
for my girlfriend.
