Star Girl

sg2

Starlight falls out of the skies

And settles in her upturned eyes

She peers into the jeweled vault

Until the sun begins to rise

An amateur astronomer

She knows the moons of Jupiter

Orion’s belt and Saturn’s rings

She loves the stars like I love her

I hope someday she’ll love me too

But I will not obstruct her view

Or take the stars out of her eyes

My love for her is tried and true
