Lying Under The Stars Together


Now it’s just me and you
Lying under the stars together
I can hear your heart beating
While we’re lying under the stars together

I feel you reaching for my hand
I feel you pulling me in,
I feel your eyes on me,
You’re so close I can taste your skin

I turn to look into your eyes
You turn to look into mine
I raise my hand in the air
Waiting for yours to entwine

You’re breath is so warm
My body is so cold
We lock our lips like a padlock
So the truth will never be told

I’m thinking, as you’re running your fingers through my hair
How you’re my knight in shining armor
Who rescued me from despair

I look up to the sky and thank the heavens above
For giving me my knight of love
I look down with a smile so genuine
Expecting to see a million white doves

My knight leans over and kisses my cheek
And starts to hum a delicate tune
He whispers how happy he is that we had a chance to meet
As he puts his nose to my neck and smells my perfume

I tell him there is nowhere else I’d rather be
Not in the mountains, not in the sea
I tell him I want this night to last forever
He tells me he feels the same
And hands me a white feather

He said it represents our love
So light and pure
He pulls me in to give me a hug
And leaves me wanting so much more.

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

When the hours of Day are numbered,
And the voices of the Night
Wake the better soul, that slumbered,
To a holy, calm delight;

Ere the evening lamps are lighted,
