In Starlight

As above, so below

Silver etches her silhouette

On my balcony

As she looks up at

The stars, gold hair glows

A halo around

Her face, lovely, full

Of serenity.

Poetry proves

A pale plagiarism

To her stunning glory.

She smiles at me,

Eyes sparkling,

And I think of

That night we first

Kissed, the moon a

Silent witness.

I didn't know, but

My whole world shifted

Then, so subtle but


I had no idea

The changes she

Would instill in me,

Her lips, gentle,

Urging into a

Life I could

Only imagine,

Full of magic and

Wonder and love

Beyond my wildest dreams.

Color returned to

My monochrome,

Light filtering into the

Shadows I thought

Were all I deserved.

I touch my lips

To her smooth, warm

Shoulder, soft.

Above us,

Big Dipper points to

North Star,

But I've already found

My direction, here

In my arms, finally

I know where I'm going,

I know where I want to be,

I know where I belong.
